Route

The B3277 speeds towards St Agnes

The B3277 is a short link road in west Cornwall.

The road starts at the Chiverton Cross Roundabout, which is also the junction of the A30, A390 and the A3075. The route enjoys an NSL start but fairly immediately is another roundabout for a junction with a road to the services and a route to Blackwater, which was the A30 in a former life. The Chiverton Arms pub is passed (another junction named after a pub) and then it's out into open farmland. After a very gentle bend is a long straight downhill section and the limit of 60mph is very comfortable here.

Presently a 40mph limit is reached at an area containing a few houses and business premises. Then the village of St Agnes proper is reached with a 30mph limit. A mini-roundabout is traversed and the road becomes much narrower in the village. Accordingly at Vicarage Road the route becomes one-way with the B3285 making up the route on the other side of the village. That route terminates at start/end of the one way system. This route continues for a short way through the village before terminating on a bend and junction of Churchtown, Trevaunance Road and Town Hill. Town Hill completes the one way part of St Agnes and is another branch of the B3285.

History

The road was originally numbered B3285. In 1935 the section of that road south of St Agnes was renumbered B3277; as such the road continued beyond the old Chiverton Crossroads along what is now the A390 to Threemilestone.

The new start at the Chiverton Cross roundabout was remodelled in 2006. Formerly, the old A30 to Blackwater route formed a sixth exit from the roundabout. That road and the B3277 were joined together before the junction via a new link road and a new service area exit added at this new roundabout junction, leaving five exits at Chiverton Cross with the aim of improving traffic flows on the A30 and A390.
