Chris Grayling gives go-ahead to road tunnel under Stonehenge
Transport secretary takes ‘big decision’ to transform A303 in move experts say could irreparably damage world heritage site
A tunnel is to be built under Stonehenge under plans announced by ministers, in a move that will reignite the controversy over improving major roads around the ancient site.
Chris Grayling said he was taking a “big decision” to transform the A303, one of the main arteries to the south-west and a notorious bottleneck for lorries and holidaymakers, as part of a £2bn investment.
