Krakow, 6 July 2017

UNESCO’S World Heritage Committee agreed in Krakow yesterday morning that the benefits a 2.9km tunnel would bring to the centre of the Stonehenge World Heritage Site (WHS) cannot be offset against the damage it would cause to other parts of the WHS. It recommends that the Government reviews the scheme to widen the A303 road so that it does not adversely affect the Outstanding Universal Value (OUV) of the WHS.
