With a change in Government I think that there is every possibility that the 'Stonehenge Tunnel' - and all that this means - will be cancelled.

No doubt there will be a lot of letters about the consequent money wasted over the last 20-plus years.

There will also be some about the loss of opportunity to, at last, take the traffic pressure off the area around the A303.

For the last two months the closure of the A360 has disrupted the lives of many people in the area.

The Avenue in Wilton is now being dug up and it seems possible that the initial power cable which was installed over a year ago to link to the A360 may have failed. 

I have had reason to drive both the Woodford Valley and the Berwick St James routes and am horrified at the degradation of both roads as a consequence of the inevitable 'rat-runners' avoiding even longer diversions.

Is it wishful thinking that when the A360 re-opens some significant money and time is spent on making essential repairs to the collateral damage created by what may well turn out to be a hugely disruptive white elephant?

The local villages deserve nothing less.
