AECOM welcomes green light for A303 Amesbury to Berwick Down (A303 Stonehenge) improvement scheme

LONDON (Nov. 12, 2020) — “The A303 Amesbury to Berwick Down improvement scheme is so much more than a road project to unlock traffic congestion. It will enhance our cultural heritage by removing the road which has blighted the backdrop to Stonehenge, as well as deliver a scheme which has been designed to enhance the area’s biodiversity. The new transport corridor will unlock potential for economic growth in the South West. It is a legacy which AECOM, as technical partner on the scheme, is proud to work with Highways England to deliver.

“AECOM’s scope of work covers all the technical services to deliver the road and tunnel, as well as consultancy services to support the procurement of the main contractor. We have already delivered the UK’s first purpose-built digital Environmental Statement for the scheme, which meant members of the public and interested groups were able to access the project’s complex environmental data, information and assessments in a user-friendly and accessible way. Through tools such as visualisations, animated drive-throughs and interactive apps, we have been able to show local communities what the final scheme will look like in exceptional detail.”
