This is the road to hell…. travellers name their top Temple tunes

With the summer holidays fast approaching and traffic delays expected at Temple on the A30 at Bodmin, Cornwall Services put out a call via social media asking travellers to name a tune that raises the spirits or sums up the frustration of being stuck in traffic!

As a bit of fun, Cornwall Services’ has compiled a list of top Temple tunes.  This is the Road to Hell by Chris Rea and We’re on the Road to Nowhere by Talking Heads topped the chart, but uplifting songs such as Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves and Summer of 69 by Bryan Adams were also named.

Other favourites included Don’t Turn Around by Aswad, Bruce Springsteen’s Working on the Highway and Highway to Hell by ACDC.

Alex Lawson, Services Manager said: “There are some great suggestions which will keep people going and offer a bit of light relief but if it all gets too much, pop in to Cornwall Services and say hello.  We’re ideally located at the Victoria Interchange on the A30.  It’s a handy place to stop, with really good food, a soft play for the kids to let off steam and all the facilities you need to recharge your batteries before safely heading on your way.”
