Lord Avebury

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the Highways Agency is considering comparisons between 2km cut-and-cover and bored tunnels and a c.4.5km long bored tunnel for the A303 at Stonehenge. [HL5568]

Lord Macdonald of Tradeston

The Highways Agency is currently assessing two tunnel options, both of which are 2km in length (cut and cover and bored) and also a comparative assessment of a 4.5km long bored tunnel. These will be published in the environmental statement for the A303 Stonehenge scheme.
