Work to upgrade a road junction near Stonehenge has been completed, six months later than scheduled.
The Grade-II listed Airman's Cross memorial at Airman's Corner was moved to make way for a new roundabout built to manage traffic diverted by the closure of the A344.
English Heritage said there were some "unexpected levelling issues" which caused delays.
A spokesman thanked residents and motorists for their patience.
The work forms part of a £27m project at Stonehenge to build a new visitor centre near the stone circle.
The Airman's Cross memorial is in storage at Perham Down Barracks and will be re-sited in the grounds of the new centre.
The centre is expected to open in Autumn 2013.
