Stonehenge Tunnel News

Not strictly Broadhembury News, but potentially of interest:

The route for the £1.6 billion Stonehenge Tunnel, a key part of the ‘South West expressway’, has today been published by Transport Secretary Chris Grayling. Linking the M3 in the South East and the M5 in the South West, the ‘expressway’ will upgrade this key route and improve journey times for millions of people. This major investment will support economic growth and tourism in an area where congestion and slow journeys have long had a negative impact on the region’s economy.

The tunnel at Stonehenge will remove the traffic blight on local communities and enhance the famous landmark. It will reconnect the two halves of the 6,500 acre World Heritage Site which is currently split by the road, and remove the sight and sound of traffic from the stones.
