Due to the discovery of a man’s death on the highway, a major tourist route has been closed completely.
After a man was discovered dead on a dual-carriageway this morning, a major route will be closed for the majority of the day.
Between Treleigh and Tolvaddon in Cornwall, a three-mile stretch of the A30 is closed both directions. Tourists frequently utilize this road to travel to beach resorts such as Portreath and Gwithian.
As part of the police inquiry, a bridge above the dual-carriageway carrying a local route to and from Tolskithy has also been closed. At roughly 3.20 a.m., the man’s body was discovered on the dual-carriageway near the structure.
According to Cornwall Live, the man’s relatives have been notified.
At this time, the force has not released any other information about the man, such as his age.
“This is a severe incident,” a Devon and Cornwall Police spokesperson stated.
“For the foreseeable future, the route will stay closed.”
Southbound vehicles should exit the A30 at Scorrier and merge onto the A3047, which will take them through Treleigh and Tolskithy.
This route can be used by northbound cars, alternatively they can exit the A30 sooner, join the A3047 near Treswithian, and travel via Camborne.
However, authorities have advised drivers that as a result, these roads are clogged.
