It is difficult to get to Stonehenge on a bike because of busy roads and the closure of one road, despite requests from Hampshire Cycling and other local campaign groups there has been a refusal to provide cycle access.
An expensive tunnel (£2 billion) under the stones will not make it any easier (no cycle lanes provided) as you can see from the picture, nor will it restore the original landscape which was once a Neolithic pilgrimage site with roads leading to it from many directions.
A coalition of campaigners, Stonehenge Alliance, has taken the first step towards a legal challenge against the Government’s plan to build a tunnel at Stonehenge.
Save Stonehenge World Heritage Site was set up by The Stonehenge Alliance, who say they have ‘instructed counsel and Leigh Day to investigate the lawfulness of the Secretary of State’s decision to approve the A303 Stonehenge dual carriageway'.
Last month transport secretary Grant Shapps approved the £2bn project, despite a recommendation from the Planning Inspectorate and UNESCO that it should be refused.
