It has taken a great deal of work to get to this stage, and I would encourage everyone to have their say in this important consultation. We will continue to work closely with Highways England and our partners to bring the scheme forward

Highway's England is consulting on proposals to improve the A303 past Stonehenge between Amesbury and Berwick Down.

The scheme is part of the government's strategy to upgrade the A303/A358 route to a continuous dual carriageway, to improve connectivity between the South East and the South West of England.

Portfolio holder for strategic highways, Fleur de Rhé-Philipe said: "We are pleased this major milestone has been reached, and we are a step closer to a scheme which helps protect the World Heritage Site and also alleviates the current traffic issues on the A303 and in surrounding communities.

"It has taken a great deal of work to get to this stage, and I would encourage everyone to have their say in this important consultation. We will continue to work closely with Highways England and our partners to bring the scheme forward."

You can complete their online consultation form or email them at: A303Stonehenge@highwaysengland.co.uk to have your say.

The consultation closes on Monday 23 April.

The Mere consultation event will be held on Friday 13 April and the Salisbury event on Saturday 14 April.
