English Heritage supports the Stonehenge Improvement Scheme
English Heritage has released a statement in support of the Highways Agency's A303 Stonehenge Improvement Scheme. A spokesperson said: "The scheme will bring a number of major benefits to the Stonehenge World Heritage Site by removing the roads and traffic from the immediate vicinity of the stone circle. This will improve the visitor experience, as well as achieving major objectives of the WHS management plan."
They added: "The route of the new road and its associated structures have been deliberately planned to minimise archaeological disturbance. However, we do have concerns about some aspects of the scheme, which we are discussing with the Highways Agency and are hopeful they will be resolved."
