We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes.

We Asked

We asked for feedback on proposals to upgrade the A303 past Stonehenge – an 8 mile (13 kilometre) stretch from Amesbury in the east, through the Stonehenge World Heritage Site (WHS) and the village of Winterbourne Stoke, to Berwick Down in the west.

The scheme needs to:

  • support regional economic growth by improving connectivity to London and the South East
  • meet future transport needs by creating a high quality reliable route
  • enhance Stonehenge by restoring its setting in the prehistoric landscape
  • improve the environment and local quality of life by reducing rat-running and other impacts

Our proposals were for a 1.8 mile (2.9 kilometre) tunnel with approach roads inside the WHS, a new bypass for Winterbourne Stoke (passing either north or south of the village) and improvements to existing junctions with the A345 and A360. 

You Said

More than 9,000 people and organisations responded to the consultation.

People generally agreed that something should be done to address the problems on the A303, but there were different opinions about what.

As well as giving views on specific elements of the project, people also offered alternative ideas and provided feedback on themes such as cultural heritage and the environment, as well as engineering, construction, planning, cost and the consultation process itself.

The views expressed and matters raised are summarised in our preferred route booklet, which you can find below in the documents section

We Did

We read and considered every response and comment you gave us and, together with the results of further surveys and assessments, used this information to review and improve our initial proposals. 

The most significant change was a re-think on the route through the western half of the WHS and the location of the western tunnel portal, which are now much closer to the line of the existing A303. This avoids many important archaeological sites, including newly-discovered important archaeology just to the east of the A360. The modified alignment also avoids any risk of the road intruding on the view of the setting sun from Stonehenge during the winter solstice, perhaps the most important sightline in the entire WHS.

Before consultation there was no clear preferred bypass option for Winterbourne Stoke. You have helped us decide that the northern route is the preferred option.

We Asked

We asked for feedback on our design options for the A120 Harwich Road Roundabout.

You Said

We received 66 responses with overwhelming support for Option 2: Without the Park Road link. Many of you expressed concern with the suitability of local roads to accommodate additional traffic. You also highlighted that the lanes are well used by walkers, cyclists and horse riders and raised concern about the safety of these vulnerable users if traffic volumes increased.

We Did

In response to your feedback we have decided to remove the Park link road from our design. We still intend for the construction to begin later this year.

We Asked

We asked for feedback on proposals to create a new dual carriageway on the A30 between Chiverton Cross and Carland Cross, to relieve congestion and improve access between communities, workplaces and local services.

You Said

Feedback received from the consultation related to the impact on farms, businesses and properties, junction capacity and the environment. We have taken this into account in the selection of the preferred route.

We Did

On 3 July 2017 we confirmed the preferred route for the A30 Chiverton to Carland Cross scheme as a modified version of the route presented at consultation.

The preferred route provides a new dual carriageway running to the north of the existing A30 between Chiverton and Chybucca and to the south between Chybucca and Carland Cross. It includes:

  • a 70mph high quality dual carriageway
  • a new roundabout at Chiverton Cross built on 2 levels to allow traffic to flow freely
  • a new partial junction at Chybucca built on 2 levels with west-facing slip-roads only to provide access onto the dual carriageway from local routes
  • new bridges at Tolgroggan Farm, Pennycomequick Lane and over the Allet to Tresawsen road to provide local access
  • a 2 level junction at Carland Cross with a new roundabout north of the dual carriageway and re-using the existing roundabout to the south
  • use of the existing A30 as a local route with new sections where necessary to provide continuity
