Route outline (key)
B3288 Tresilian - Tregony

The B3288 was a short link road east of Truro to Tregony from the Truro to St. Austell road.

Route

The former B3288 (now A3078) in Smithdowns Wood

It started on the A39 east of Tresilian and ended on the B3287 in Tregony. It passed through no places en route and, other than at the start and finish, met no other classified roads. To enter Tregony it made a long detour via Smithdowns Wood to avoid the steep Freewater Hill.


History

In 1935 the entire road was upgraded to become part of the A3078, which had its southern end in St Mawes. Later still, in 1995, the A390 Probus bypass took over the route of the western section of the ex-B3288.

Freewater Hill had been bypassed in 1921 prior to the 1922-23 road number allocations. This was by a new one mile road south from Freewater along Killow Brake which was opened on 13 October 1921 by W. Hawk, Cornwall County Council Chairman. It utilised part of the drive at Trewarthenick, donated by Capt. P.A. Welman. Width was 18 feet and cost £10,500. It connected to the existing road from Trewarthenick to Tregony and so bypassed the steep climb of Freewater Hill on the Truro to Tregony road. The new road was not shown on the 1922-23 Ministry of Transport Map which showed B3288 passing over Freewater Hill.

B3288 will return as part of the A30/Carland Cross - Chiverton Cross Dualling scheme. It will run alongside the newly-upgraded A30 and it will inherit parts of the old road.
