UK approves new road tunnel to reduce Stonehenge congestion

LONDON, Nov 12 (Reuters) - Britain has given development consent to a new two-mile road tunnel that will reduce congestion around Stonehenge, the prehistoric site made up of a mysterious circle of stones in southern England.

“The Secretary of State agrees the benefits of the development would include enabling visitors to Stonehenge to see the stone circle without the visual and aural distraction of road traffic,” Transport minister Grant Shapps said in a letter approving the project.
