Route

On the A3059 heading East out of Newquay

The A3059 is a non-primary A-road in central Cornwall.

The road starts on the Trekenning Roundabout which is the junction with the A39 at the end of the St Columb Major bypass. The road heads west, initially passing an industrial estate, and soon enters the countryside. It continues to a bend to the left as the road skirts the threshold of Newquay Cornwall Airport. Further on is the entrance to RAF St Mawgan. Military flying operations ended some years ago and the airfield was handed over to the civilian airport. It continues as a non-flying military training base.

The fairly straight sections so far are replaced with several bends and a double white line dominates. The road passes a caravan and camping site then hits the village of St Columb Minor which is now essentially a Newquay overspill. The road bypasses the village centre and ends at a T-junction with the A3058. Turn right for Newquay.

The last couple of hundred yards are covered by a 30 mph limit. The entire rest of the road is under the National Speed Limit.

History

On first numbering in 1922 the route was given the number B3281; the road gained its current classification in the mid-1920s. The original start was from the centre of St Columb Major. The route was diverted onto another road with a short new-build section added at the end to link up with the newly built Trekenning Roundabout, when the St Columb Major bypass was opened in the late 1970s.
