Stonehenge tunnel plans published

Transport secretary Chris Grayling has published plans for the long-discussed Stonehenge tunnel.

The route of the links of the M3 and M5 motorways and consists of 1.8 miles of tunnels, past the famous structure.

As part of the £1.6 billion plan, a Winterbourne Stoke bypass is also coming, thus relieving pressure on the town of their current traffic problems.

The tunnel has been reported in the area plans and, after a public consultation, of its entries are moved; the earlier proposal of entry into conflict with the alignment of the solstice.

The consultation process involving local communities, heritage groups, archaeologists, historians, engineers, giving more attention to the sensitive location of many other road construction projects.

The tunnel runs for 50 meters of the stone structure of the A303 today and rejoins the two halves of the humanity by the Unesco Heritage of humanity, a 10-square-mile area that the A303 currently crosses horizontally.

The roads of England chief executive Jim O’sullivan describes the A303 as a “vital route between the South-West and the rest of the country.” He said: “the Roads of England is committed to providing a high quality, modern road on this route.

“We have heard the comments of the consultation and I believe that this preferred route will help to improve the flow of traffic, reducing rat-running in and around the roads, making improvements to local communities and the benefits to the South-West of the economy.”
