A major landscaping project should be finished by next summer, and traffic will be diverted onto nearby roads instead.
A344 Stonehenge, both ways between B3086 and A303
A344 Wiltshire – A344 in Stonehenge closed in both directions between Airmans Cross and Stonehenge Fork, because of development of the Stonehenge site – permanent closure. Diversion in operation – via A360 Longbarrow roundabout.
Main Changes at Stonehenge
- The A344/A303 junction will be closed
- The A344 from Stonehenge Bottom to Byway 12 near the stones will be closed
- Vehicular traffic on the A344 between Byway 12 and the new visitor centre at Airman’s Corner will be restricted
Modifications to Existing Routes
Alongside these changes there will be measures to mitigate the impact of the closure of the A344. Traffic removed from the 344 will be directed along the A360 via Longbarrow Roundabout and Airman’s Corner junctions, both of which will be modified to accommodate the re-directed traffic.
The A303/A344 junction is a renowned accident black-spot; its closure will reduce the risk of accidents in this location and was strongly supported by local residents in the public consultation of 2008.
