Turner & Townsend has been appointed to provide commercial services for Highways England’s flagship $2.2bn A303 Stonehenge scheme. The project includes plans to build a 2.8km long road tunnel near Stonehenge.
It is part of a series of planned upgrades to A303/A358 corridor to improve connectivity between the south east and south west of England.
The three-year contract will see Turner & Townsend provide commercial services including estimating, benchmarking performance, commercial reporting and cost management taking the scheme into construction. The project is currently undergoing consultation on Highways England’s preferred route.

Gary Healey, Director at Turner & Townsend said: “The A303 upgrade is one of the most significant schemes set to be delivered under the Government’s Road Investment Strategy – creating a better experience for road users, improving economic connectivity across the south, and reducing the visual impact of this key arterial route on Stonehenge itself.
Our previous experience working on major programmes, including smart motorways, sets us in good stead to support Highways England in delivering these schemes in a way that optimises commercial performance and drives productivity on site.”
