Stonehenge tunnel plan cash blow

The government is to re-examine plans for a road scheme aimed at diverting traffic away from Stonehenge after the cost of the project doubled.
The scheme, which includes building a tunnel for the A303 near the ancient Wiltshire site, was estimated to cost £183m when it was announced in 2002.

But now the government says the project will cost around £470m

A detailed review of the tunnel plan, as well as other road proposals for the site, will now be carried out.
