We agree with @Andrew_Adonis - We should be looking to upgrade the rail network to the South West.
Victory: Controversial Stonehenge tunnel ruled 'unlawful' read our statement at: https://www.cprewiltshire.org.uk/news/victory-controversial-stonehenge-tunnel-ruled-unlawful/
Stonehenge campaigners, represented by @RowWilliamSmith are celebrating a massive victory after a judge ruled that a decision to allow a dual carriageway, road and tunnel to be built within the ancient World Heritage Site was unlawful.
Judge concluded @grantshapps had not properly considered alternatives to the #Stonehenge tunnel and dual carriageway in the World Heritage Site. This is correct, and the Transport Secretary accepted that the scheme would cause "permanent and irreversible harm" to the WHS https://twitter.com/A303Stonehenge/status/1421126411784437760
When we see the statement from the Dept of Transport following this decision we will respond. Let's hope it is not just a temporary stay of execution for the world's most famous and wonderful stone circle, its surroundings and landscape. @BBCWiltshire @journalupdate @HeartWilts
#Stonehenge Tunnel at @A303Stonehenge - my understanding is the entire Highways England project will now be halted, pending a Government re-think. It’s a substantial victory for campaigners who crowdfunded to bring a judicial review.
Short summary and link to judgment here - https://www.39essex.com/stonehenge-tunnel-approval-quashed/
High Court quashes Stonehenge Tunnel plans. Congratulations to everyone involved in the case to #savestonehenge led by the @SaveStonehenge. It is a shame that it should have come to this: It was an appalling decision by @grantshapps in the first place.

Judgement on Stonehenge 👇
Hedgerows are the unsung heroes of the countryside.
Here’s all you need to know about these leafy guys, and why they’re great for the climate, nature and people. 👇 👇 #40by50
Unesco confirmed Stonehenge would be added to its heritage in danger list, and could be stripped of its world heritage status if a £2.4bn tunnel is built as planned. It said the 2 mile tunnel would irreversibly damage an area of outstanding universal value https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2021/jul/30/from-stonehenge-to-the-lakes-unesco-concerns-for-uk-landmarks
We are waiting for the imminent result. Let us hope the ruling is to protect #stonehenge and the landscape. Say NO to the #StonehengeTunnel

Important date for your diary. Building massive new roads along treasured green valleys is the ultimate madness in a climate emergency @CPRE https://twitter.com/saverimrose/status/1420724139363536899
Pleased to join voices with heritage & countryside colleagues to sign this @CPRE letter to @thetimes calling for urgent action around hedgerows https://twitter.com/CPRE/status/1419629323036893188
This is why we need to stop the plans to build a four lane road and tunnel next to this amazing site. If you believe in protecting our countryside and our historic monuments, join us! @grantshapps reverse the decision. #savestonehenge https://twitter.com/EnglishHeritage/status/1418843398551740416
Love to see our CEO @CrispinTruman joining leaders at @WoodlandTrust @GreenpeaceUK @Natures_Voice @TheTreeCouncil @WildlifeTrusts in a letter @TheTimes calling for urgent action to extend our hedgerows by 40% by 2050 #40by50
