A303 Amesbury to Berwick Down (Stonehenge)

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?

The A303 Amesbury to Berwick Down project is classified as a nationally significant infrastructure project, which means that a Development Consent Order (or DCO) is needed for permission to build.

Over the past eighteen months, our proposals have been examined by a panel of independent inspectors appointed by the Planning Inspectorate.

In January, they issued their report containing their recommendation to the Secretary of State for Transport who is now expected to make a decision by 13 November 2020.

This will be shared on the Planning Inspectorate’s website along with the inspectors’ report.

Take a look at our latest booklet  to get a quick overview of the scheme – setting out its key features, and what benefits it will bring. Find out more in our latest news section.
