At last someone has made the right decision - although for the wrong reasons. The Stonehenge project has been fatally flawed from inception and at long last it is recognised that spending over £100M to hide a road from the stones is not viable on any but the highest level of academic theory.
The people who live near the stones, visit them or drive past on the A303 do not want the current scheme or anything like it, and the answer is so simple.
Build a new southbound carriageway on embankment with archaeology safely protected below it. Build a 'green bund' between the stones and the A303 and close the A344 between the A303 and A360: use the freed road space to build the visitor centre at Airman's Corner.
Our engineering is directed too much towards form rather than function and we are pricing high profile projects off the scale - over-specified and fundamental decisions are not tested early enough.
