The hole is approximately four feet across and up to 15 feet deep, and urgent investigations are underway and a mining expert is assessing the situation.

A fully signed diversion route is in place via the A3047 at Scorrier.

“At the moment we do not know what has caused the hole but we are working as quickly as we can to understand what has happened and identify a solution. We hope to have one lane westbound open later today and we will issue an update as soon as we have one.”
