Some, like Mr Franklin (Letters, last week) may favour a cut and tunnel route, but others like to enjoy the view, however brief, when passing.
Our heritage is blessed with over 50 megaliths in England and Wales alone. Of these, Stonehenge is undoubtedly the most awe-inspiring and happens to be readily accessible, so why route underground risking possible subsidence problems and archaeological damage when the monument stands out for all to see and marvel?
In 2005 you published my letter suggesting that Stonehenge be made the centrepiece of a large roundabout incorporating the A344 Devizes road and alleviating the A303 junction problem.
A suitably sited car park could then be provided with perhaps a footbridge for those who wished to walk around for a closer view.
Nearby Avebury is an equally accessible megalith where the A361 major lorry route passes through the Circle without undue damage to the harmony. So why all this continuing fuss about disturbing the tranquillity of Stonehenge?
