Reuniting the Stonehenge landscape and improving your journey
We will improve the A303 past Stonehenge between Amesbury and Berwick by creating a new dual carriageway with a tunnel, removing traffic from much of this iconic setting.
What's happening now?
The legal challenge against the decision to grant consent for the A303 Amesbury to Berwick Down scheme past Stonehenge has been upheld by the High Court judge. In light of the ruling, the Secretary of State is going to look again at the evidence on which he based his decision. We don’t yet know what this will involve or how long it may take but we’ll work closely with the Department of Transport to support them throughout.
We are confident that our scheme presents the best solution for tackling the longstanding bottleneck on this section of the A303, returning the Stonehenge landscape to something like its original setting and helping to boost the south-west economy.
