A303 Stonehenge surveys in the Countess roundabout area
As part of ongoing preparation work for the A303 Stonehenge upgrade, Highways England is undertaking overnight surveys in the Countess Roundabout area from Monday 16 March 2020 until Thursday 19 March 2020.
The surveys will allow Highways England to test ground conditions and the strength of the existing road. To minimise disruption, they are scheduled to happen between 8pm and 5am.
Small sections of the road need to be temporarily closed for the safety of Highways England workers, drivers and the local community.
One lane will be closed on Countess roundabout, on the approaches to the roundabout on the A345 and on the A303 - from 300 metres west of Countess roundabout extending 700 metres eastwards. These lane closures will be removed each morning by 5am.
The surveying machinery will run in 20-minute intervals during working hours and will produce some noise. The noise will be similar to the sound of a motorcycle and may be disruptive to residents living near-by.
Highways England apologise for any inconvenience caused while they carry this work out and would like to thank residents for their continued patience.
