Earlier this year you contributed your feedback to our consultation on improving the A303 past Stonehenge, between Amesbury and Berwick Down.

We’ve been using the feedback we received to further develop our plans.

From this, we’ve identified three changes on which we would welcome your views before we submit our application to build the scheme.

These are:

– To remove the previously proposed link between Byways 11 and 12 in the Stonehenge World Heritage Site

– To widen the green bridge proposed near the existing Longbarrow roundabout

– To move the proposed modification to Rollestone crossroads.

A number of people also asked us to clarify our public rights of way proposals along the scheme, so we’re taking this opportunity to do this.

Supplementary consultation on the proposed changes runs from 17 July 2018 to 14 August 2018. You’re welcome to view all the latest documentation and submit your feedback on the scheme online.

We’ve updated the scheme website and consultation page.

Major incident: community litter picks update

Due to the ongoing investigation into the major incident in Salisbury and Amesbury, and following the current advice of Public Health England (PHE), we recommend that any planned community litter picks in the Salisbury and Amesbury community areas are postponed until further notice.

As a precaution, PHE’s advice to everyone in the Salisbury and Amesbury area is that nobody should pick up any foreign object that does not belong to them. These could contain (or could have previously contained) liquid or gel.

This means people should not pick up:

  • Containers
  • Lids
  • Syringes
  • Needles
  • Cosmetics
  • Or similar objects, made of materials such as metal, plastic or glass.

The message is if you didn’t drop it, don’t pick it up

We really appreciate and welcome people’s enthusiasm to carry out clean-ups and litter picks in their local communities and we hope that we can recommend these continuing, as soon as possible.

PHE’s current advice, based on the small number of casualties affected following the recent incident, is that the risk to the public remains low. They will keep this assessment under constant review as further information becomes known.
