HIGHWAYS AGENCY SEEKS CONSENSUS OVER STONEHENGE ROAD ROUTE

Initiatives to free Stonehenge and the village of Winterbourne Stoke of traffic along the A303, between Amesbury and Berwick Down, were unveiled today by the Highways Agency.

The exhibition, showing all the routes which have been considered, marks the start of a public debate on whether the road needs to be improved and if so how it should be done.

A special 'planning conference' headed by an independent chairman will be held in November where all interested organisations and individuals can put forward their views and proposals.

Tony Duke, Highways Agency project director for the scheme said:

'Various plans to improve this stretch of road have been put forward in the past, but an agreement has not been reached on what should be done. We have taken the unusual step of holding a conference as an attempt to come up with a workable solution.

'We have identified several options to initiate debate and focus people's minds on possible options. The conference will give local residents, road users and organisations such as English Heritage and the National Trust the opportunity to present their views and to come forward with a viable route.'
