WHAT DOES THE PETITION ASK FOR?
NO FURTHER DAMAGE should be done to the archaeological landscape of Stonehenge.
Future generations would be appalled at those who decided that road widening should be at the expense of England’s most iconic World Heritage Site.
If A303 widening at Stonehenge is felt to be essential it should be done by means of a deep bored tunnel at least 4.5km long. Anything shorter would cause irreparable damage to this landscape, in breach of the World Heritage Convention.

* Since we cannot validate third party platforms we assume that this total will include some duplication, but it can be treated as a firm indication of the strength of feeling.
Since setting up the petition:
We have told the Government that:
1. any road tunnel would need to be long enough to avoid the ENTIRE World Heritage Site and its setting altogether. We cannot change the wording but our intention to avoid further damage is clearly stated in the petition. This would be in line with planning policy and World Heritage Convention safeguards, and that
2. on the matter of carbon reduction: less damaging options should be explored, including non-road engineering solutions first.
