Survey work for scheme enters next stage

Survey work for scheme enters next stage

2 October 2020

From Monday 7 October we’re beginning our next stage of investigation work at Countess roundabout as part of the proposed A303 Amesbury to Berwick Down (Stonehenge) scheme.

During the summer we let you know about the beginning of this work, which is getting more information for the bidders – who will be tendering to be awarded the contract for constructing the scheme.

The work at Countess will take place over night and a night-time closure will be in place on the roundabout on weeknights, between the hours of 8pm and 6am, for a total of three weeks – from Monday 7 October 2019.

Once these surveys are complete there will be a further six weeks of ground investigation work taking place from the start of November, and will involve the drilling of boreholes and shallow trial pits with lane closures in place for safety reasons.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time for their journeys.
