I would be very interested to get answers from Highways England to the following two rather basic questions:
1. How does the current proposed bypass route to the north of Winterbourne Stoke differ from the previous Government preferred route? I understand from various sources, that one of the key differences is the height of the proposed embankments and viaducts. Apparently both were much less pronounced under the previous preferred route to the north of Winterbourne Stoke. If this is true, then what is the reason for this significant change?
2. Where will the spoil from the Stonehenge Tunnel be redeployed? How much of the tunnel spoil is being used to elevate the heights of the embankments on the southern and northern bypass routes?
