HL Deb 04 November 1999 vol 606 cc105-6WA
Lord Kennet

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How the Highways Agency has spent £794,945 on the design of the Stonehenge part of the scheme for the A.303—Berwick Down road scheme, seeing there is no publicly agreed proposal for this; and how is the Stonehenge part of the scheme defined (HC Deb., 19 October, WA 427). [HL4374]

Lord Whitty

The figure of £794,945 is the cost of studies, surveys and other work over a period of more than three years, covering a wide range of route and tunnel solutions. Also included is the cost of work necessitated by the Planning Conference and subsequent work done in preparation for the Roads Review. The A.303 Stonehenge scheme extends from Berwick Down up to and including Countess Roundabout at Amesbury.
