Construction Enquirer News Three consortia in running for massive road project
Development consent has been given to construct the £1.7bn Stonehenge tunnel.
The new section of dual carriageway will ease congestion on the A303 between Amesbury and Berwick Down.
The application was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for consideration by Highways England back in October 2018.
The Planning Inspectorate’s Chief Executive, Sarah Richards said: “There has been a great deal of public interest in this project.
“A major priority for us over the course of the examination was to ensure that communities who might be affected by this proposal had the opportunity to put forward their views.
“As always, the Examining Authority gave careful consideration to these before reaching its conclusion.”
Three consortia have been shortlisted for job which involves a 2-mile tunnelling project and 8-miles of dual carriageway upgrade.
