13th November 2020:
The Secretary of State for Transport announced yesterday the decision to grant consent to the A303 Amesbury to Berwick Down project. A comprehensive programme of archaeological works is planned, and we are delighted to be part of the team assisting Wessex Archaeology in what we expect to be an exciting and ambitious project.
The project will be led by Wessex Archaeology, who will be working in collaboration with partners to draw on wide-ranging, world-class expertise, learn from one another, and share best practice and resources. The project will allow us to understand more about this special landscape and share the findings with local communities and the wider public.
The A303 upgrade represents an exciting and unprecedented opportunity for close collaboration within the commercial archaeology and environmental management sector to produce an outstanding programme of work – and change the way our industry co-operates in the future.
