Thankfully this unlawful approval has been quashed by the High Court. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-wiltshire-58024139

"[The judge] found that there was a "material error of law" in the government's decision-making process as there was no evidence of the impact on each individual asset at the site.

And he said Mr Shapps had failed to consider alternative schemes, in accordance with the World Heritage Convention and common law." (BBC article's summary of the ruling)

Thatís sad to see UK follow in the US footsteps of blocking much needed projects. Hopefully a resolution comes and this project is built.

I'll believe the A303 needs expansion, but why can't they just expand it in place or build a wider road through the fields to the south of the current road?  Why does it need to be in a tunnel?
