Stonehenge and the tunnel

Just a short post to ask you to support the campaign against the proposed tunnel under Stonehenge. This is from the Stonehenge Alliance

The Stonehenge World Heritage Site is under threat from a major road building scheme. The UK Government plans to spend £2 billion widening the A303 to the South West. The dual carriageway would cross the the iconic Stonehenge World Heritage Site (WHS) in a short tunnel within a landscape that is considered “the most archaeologically significant land surface in Europe without parallel”. The WHS is 5.4km (3.4 miles) wide (see map below) but the proposal is for a 2.9km (1.8 mile) tunnel.

Petitions to sign are available here: http://stonehengealliance.org.uk/our-campaign/petition/

Better still is a letter to Highways England in response to their consultation. How to do this and suggestions to write are here: http://stonehengealliance.org.uk/act-now/write-to-highways-england/
