Stonehenge: A303 tunnel plan could be looked at again – BBC News
2 days ago
The case for building a road tunnel near Stonehenge is to be re-examined despite a judge overturning planning permission for it last year.
Campaigners fighting the £1.7billion plans celebrated when the decision to approve the scheme was quashed.
But Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has now published a “statement of matters” inviting the case for the two-mile tunnel to be made again.
National Highways said it was “pleased” the scheme could be re-examined.
It wants to build the tunnel, which has the backing of Wiltshire Council, to reduce traffic and cut journey times on the A303, the most direct route for motorists travelling between the South East and South West.
