Reuniting the Stonehenge landscape and improving your journey
The A303 past Stonehenge between Amesbury and Berwick Down will be improved by creating a new dual carriageway with a tunnel removing traffic from much of this iconic setting.
What’s happening now?
We’ve just entered the formal six-month Examination period which is part of the planning process. Large projects such as A303 Amesbury to Berwick Down are classified as nationally significant infrastructure projects which means that we need to apply for a Development Consent Order (or DCO) to gain permission to build. Five independent Inspectors – appointed by the Planning Inspectorate – will look at evidence presented by the project and issues raised by others between now and October 2019.
You can view our DCO application on the Planning Inspectorate’s website. Or take a look at our latest booklet which will give you a quick overview – setting out the scheme’s key features, what’s developed since our 2018 public consultations, and what benefits this will bring.
