Serious ‘concerns’ over plans to dual the A303 and build tunnel under Stonehenge; itv

A new report claims that there is uncertainty over plans to dual the A303 and build a tunnel under Stonehenge. The Amesbury and Berwick Down road improvement project, which involves building a tunnel beneath the World Heritage Site, is still at a very early stage. However a report by the National Audit Office claims that there are risks and uncertainty around it being delivered on time and achieving the desired benefits. The project forms part of the A303 and A358 road corridor which links the South East and South West of England.
