Route

The A3076 is a short A-road in west Cornwall, although at one time it was much longer.

Mitchell - Gummow's Shop

Approaching the junction with the A3058

The current route could hardly be simpler. It starts from the two-way eastbound sliproads from the A30 in Mitchell. It joins a roundabout for the bridge across the A30 and another minor road, which links to the westbound sliproads. Turning left, the A3076 crosses open farmland and passes perhaps two houses before it terminates within two miles at the Gummow's Shop crossroads. The left and right turn is the A3058.

History

The full length of the A3076 in 1932

Before the Indian Queens to Carland Cross dualled section of the A30 was built in 1995, the road continued into the village of Mitchell proper. After a multiplex west along that road, it also had another section: leaving the A30 at the Carland Cross roundabout and continuing down to Truro. A re-routed A39 took over the designation of this section, although half of that part of the road was put on a new alignment bypassing the former A3076. The last few miles approaching Truro of the current A39 are on the original alignment of the A3076 but the final stretch into town is unclassified as the A39 takes a more rural route onto the bypass.

Upon first numbering in 1922, both parts of the road were numbered as the B3280 and gained the A3076 number in the late 1920s.
