A303: Stonehenge

Volume 460: debated on Thursday 24 May 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he will announce his decision on the A303(T) improvement scheme at Stonehenge. (138405)

We are considering the findings of the inter-departmental review of the Stonehenge Improvement Scheme and alternative options. In order to understand more fully the effects of some of the options on the operation of the A303 and the local road network, it has been necessary to undertake further detailed analysis based on up-to-date traffic surveys which were undertaken last autumn. The results from this work will be considered alongside the findings of the review group to inform our decision on the way forward for this scheme which we expect to announce later in 2007.
