Residents unhappy with plans to dual the A30 between Chiverton Cross and Carland Cross have voiced their concerns at a public meeting.
Highways England announced its preferred route for the eight-mile stretch earlier this month. The project will cost £290m and it's hoped work will begin in the spring of 2020, with a timescale of up to three years.
Critics at the meeting in Perranporth last night said they were concerned about disturbance because of the works and how long construction could take, especially as two years of disruption had just finished with the recent dualling of the A30 at Temple, near Bodmin.
Cornwall Council Environment Liaison Officer Jeremy Edwards said the authority wanted to build on the success of completing the Temple dualling.
The plans will go through a further period consultation before a detailed planning application can be submitted.
West Devon Council approves consultation into South Hams merger plans
West Devon Borough Council has approved holding a public consultation into plans to merge with neighbouring South Hams District Council.
The authorities say combining will "help address the combined £1.9m gap in finances brought about by successive reductions in central government funding since 2010".
The councils already share some services, a chief executive and other staff.
West Devon said that South Hams councillors were to consider the proposals on Thursday and, if they agreed, there would be a public consultation starting in early August.
However, the move could mean council tax bills for some in the South Hams increasing by an extra £25 a year for three years as its rates are lower.
Blitz and pieces: War memorabilia collector explains what he's selling
An expert from Historic England is warning Plymouth's planners not to repeat the mistakes of their predecessors 50 years ago when they approved a large hotel near the Hoe.
Simon Hickman said the Quality Hotel, which has been demolished after it shut and was damaged by several arson attacks, was an eyesore in an iconic location and he feared it would be replaced with something much worse.
Ciaran Maxwell, 31, compiled a library of terrorism documents, bought chemicals
and components and went on to manufacture explosives and devices, which he
stashed in purpose-built hides in England and Northern Ireland.
The 31-year-old, of Exminster in Devon, also had maps, plans and lists of
potential targets for a terrorist attack - as well as images of an adapted
Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) pass card and a PSNI uniform.
The court heard terrorist documents and bomb-making guides, including the Irish
Republican Army "Green Book", were found on Maxwell's media devices, along
with potential targets for terrorism.
Police found satellite map images of power stations in Northern Ireland and
Larne police station with a "blast radius put on top of it".
There were also street maps of military barracks, a council building and an
"Orange hall", as well as details of the addresses of HMRC offices in Northern
Ireland, the Northern Ireland Office in Westminster and London's NCA
headquarters, the court heard.
Other files included the names and contact details of PSNI officers and a
police/MI5 officer in the UK, the court heard.
Mr Whittam said: "Whether I was to describe it as attack planning or
preparation, it has that hallmark."
Beach cafe blaze: Cause yet to be confirmed
One of Teignmouth's best known buildings has been severely damaged by fire.
Four fire crews were called to the Beachcomber Cafe on the Promenade at 22:45 last night.
It's carnival week in the town and the police had to control crowds that had gathered to watch the drama unfold.
Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service is yet to release the cause of the blaze.
One-hundred-and-seventy jobs at risk at two Devon businesses
About 170 jobs are at risk at two different firms in Devon.
A Newton Abbot company which manufactures insulated glass is set to close with the loss of 120 jobs.
DB Glass sent letters to its workforce last week explaining that it was entering a 45-day consultation process with the Unite union reps.
DB Glass is the Devon trading name for Specialist Building Products Ltd based in Solihull who said it would be inappropriate to comment on the closure plans during the consultation period.
Meanwhile, Devon Sweet Factory in Crediton has gone into administration with the loss of 52 jobs. Formerly known as Crediton Confectionery, the company called in administrators earlier this month, days after the staff were made redundant.
The administrators RSM Restructuring said it was optimistic a buyer would be found for the sweet factory which makes bonbons and fudge under the Tuckers and Bristows brands.
RSM said the company blamed "unforeseen working capital pressure" for the decision to cease trading.
