New Stonehenge plan

The A344 will be closed at Stonehenge to make way for a new £25M visitor centre. A previous scheme to build a £500M tunnel under the stones was abandoned in 2007.

Prime minister Gordon Brown said that a range of public and private sources would fund the new centre.

The announcement follows a decision in 2007 not to pursue construction of a 2.1km bore tunnel for the A303 which also runs close to the henge.
