Last change to have say on A303 Stonehenge upgrade
Fleets and other road users are being urged to have their say on the A303 Stonehenge upgrade before the consultation ends later this month.
The controversial scheme to improve the A303 between Amesbury and Berwick Down includes plans for a 1.9-mile long tunnel past Stonehenge, a free-flowing dual carriageway and a bypass north of Winterbourne Stoke.
Highways England chief executive Jim O’Sullivan has previously said the upgrades will improve millions of journeys. However, archaeological experts have warned that the work could destroy an Ice Age site.
Following consultation – which ends on 23 April, the scheme will then progress through the formal planning process later this year. Subject to statutory approval, construction is planned to start in 2021.
