Yet again a Highways England press release has revealed more than they intended. They announced a further six weeks of work on and around the A303 Countess roundabout from Monday, November 4, involving the drilling of boreholes and digging of trial pits, but then comes this strange claim:

The survey work in no way pre-empts the outcome of the Development Consent Order Examination, which concluded earlier this month.

So: they are saying their excavations won’t pre-empt the scheme outcome or (according to the dictionary) forestall it, prevent it from happening or make it unnecessary or impossible.

So as we’ve previously feared, it seems that if “Unlucky Henge” or other archaeology is found during survey work, it won’t affect the scheme! (Indeed, the question arises, would the details even be published until it’s far too late?)
