Is the British government’s proposal for a two-mile long tunnel beneath Stonehenge good value for money? Maybe not.

Scheduled to be operational in 2026, the Stonehenge tunnel project will include a new 2 mile (3.3 kilometer) long twin-bore tunnel running underneath the Stonehenge World Heritage Site in a bid to improve congestion on the 8 mile (13 kilometer) long A303 between Amesbury and Berwick Down past Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England.

But these holy places and the nearby Neolithic sites are an “incomparable testimony to prehistoric times, ” says UNESCO. The Stonehenge monument, being over 4,500 years old, is one of the best-preserved ancient structures left, anywhere. However, no less important is the Wiltshire chalk landscape around the monument which is as crucial to the mechanics of the astronomical observatory as the stones are themselves.
