Aims.New radio observations are presented for a sample of 56 Compact Steep Spectrum (CSS) radio sources from the B3-VLA CSS sample.Methods.We used the VLA A-configuration observation at 2 cm to obtain high-frequency, high-resolution data.Results.The majority (85%) of sources have a double morphology with a number of them showing a large asymmetry in terms of their component flux densities and/or component arm ratio. These new data have revealed 27 cores and core candidates. Three of the sources have a core-jet morphology and the morphologies of a few objects (≤) are still ambiguous. The integrated radio spectra, over a frequency range from 0.16 to 15 GHz, show good agreement with a “continuous injection model” for ≥ of the sources.
