Without the National Trust’s support, the Government’s proposal would be unlikely to succeed since the road goes through and under land owned by the Trust.
Please ask the National Trust to stand up for Stonehenge World Heritage Site, support sustainable transport solutions that address traffic issues, and ask the Government to abandon its intention to proceed with the A303 scheme. The National Trust should consider road building as an option of last resort, and not support a dual carriageway through a World Heritage Site.
