Roadworks close section of A303 near Stonehenge

A section of the A303 near Stonehenge in Wiltshire will be closed for roadworks over the next several weeks.

A six-mile stretch of road between Amesbury's Countess Roundabout and the dual carriageway at Deptford will be shut between 2000 and 0600 GMT.

The Highways Agency is carrying out the work to install a quieter surface on the single carriageway road .

Spokesman Dave Sledge said: "This will improve the environment around those areas, especially Stonehenge itself."

Traffic will be diverted on to other routes while the roadworks are being carried out.
