    Just as a heads up for anyone coming to Cornwall via the A38 and Tamar Bridge- As of 8pm tomorrow ( fri 3rd July) through to 6am monday 6th July the main part of the bridge will be closed for strengthening works. West bound traffic will be using the cycle/pedestrian lane and east bound will be using the saltash local traffic lane. It will be the same proceedure the following weekend (10th-13thJuly) and potentially weekend of 17th-20th july if the works are "delayed due to weather".

    We already have roadworks at Carkeeel roundabout (big roundabout just after the tunnel) which is causing delays and this is definitely going to add to that - be prepared for long daytime delays :(

    Best avoided then!
    But at least it's before the main English school holidays.

    We tend to go A30/ M5 which may be a better bet in this instance even if a bit further for some - if you can also avoid the bits of single carriageway on the A30 at Temple which can be a real bottleneck ("The Bodmin Moor Car Park"), and between Carland Cross and Chiverton Cross roundabouts.
