Access To Stonehenge

EDM number 2359 in 2005-06, proposed by Gordon Marsden on 13/06/2006.

That this House recognises that Stonehenge is one of the most important and loved prehistoric monuments on Earth and one of the best known World Heritage sites; further recognises that it is an icon of the country's history, culture and civilisation and a testimony to mankind's creativity, ingenuity and engineering skills; notes that in 1993 the Public Accounts Committee described its presentation and setting as `a national disgrace'; further notes that during the past 25 years various schemes to address the problems at Stonehenge have been proposed and over £25 million of public money has been spent without those problems being solved; further notes that the Government is currently reviewing the published scheme for improvements to the A303 at Stonehenge, which includes a 2.1km bored tunnel to remove the road from within sight of the Stones, which was recommended for approval at a public inquiry; calls on the Government to take up this proposal and resolve for future generations the issue of proper access to Stonehenge; urges the Government to commit to the published scheme for the A303; further notes that this solution is the only option which fulfils the World Heritage Site management plan; further recognises that this solution is the only option deliverable by Olympic year 2012; further notes that by doing nothing traffic congestion along the A303 and surrounding local roads will worsen with potentially tragic consequences; and believes that if nothing is done now an opportunity to serve visitors now and in future generations to Stonehenge and the associated monuments in the area will be lost.

This motion has been signed by a total of 66 MPs.
