A30

Fraddon Junction, also known as Penhale Junction and Hamburger Hill, is a grade separated junction on the A30, providing access to the village of Fraddon, Cornwall, and the B3275. The junction also provides access to local services, including a fast food restaurant and a petrol station.

The junction has a very short history, being constructed and opened in 1995 when the Indian Queen's Bypass opened on the A30, A39, A392 and B3279. The junctions purpose is to connect to the B3275, which up until Fraddon follows the former route of the A39 through Ladock. The short section from the roundabout to the west to the junction was built to connect to the A30 and divert traffic out of the villages, as well as connect a local road that was severed by the A30.

Trivia

  • The junction is part of the only section of the A30 in the south west to have three lanes in one direction as there is a crawler lane for Highgate Hill.
  • The junction and the hill that is on is locally known as Hamburger Hill, named in honour of the fast food restaurant within Penhale services whose logo is prominently displayed beside the road.
  • There was no junction on the site previous to the bypass.
