Stonehenge Tunnel

The A303 is one of the main thoroughfares across the English West Country. It is a famous road because at West Amesbury it passes just three hundred feet from the ancient stone circle of Stonehenge, the most famous Neolithic monument in the world. The A303 is also renowned for being very congested, and indeed it has been running at over-capacity for several decades. Over twenty thousand vehicles a day pass through the primeval hallowed landscape. This generates a lot of noise which disturbs the peace of the sacred site. The ground vibrations, especially from large vehicles like lorries and coaches, might cause damage in the long run. It also makes it less accessible for tourists. Several solutions have been suggested, including rerouting the A303 or making it wider; but in the late 1980's it was proposed that the road could be moved into a tunnel. Building tunnels is a major engineering challenge; to make a hole in the subterranean world where none exists naturally. It is difficult and extremely expensive. It is highly unusual for a tunnel to be constructed to overcome anything other than an insurmountable geographic obstacle like a wide river or a mountain range. There has been a long planning and consultation session and a few days ago the tunnel was finally approved. Source: The plan chosen was one of several originally tabled. The winner is, predictably, the cheapest and simplest model. A 1.8 mile long bored tunnel will roughly follow the existing route of the A303, passing in a straight line directly underneath the UNESCO World Heritage site of Stonehenge. I don't know exactly how deep it will be, but it is planned to be of standard depth for a tunnel of its size, about fifty feet in diameter. If it is the same depth as the Seattle dig, see background links below, then its roof will be about fifty feet below ground level. To visualize that; the central lintel stones of the monument are about seventeen feet high. The project will cost about 1.4 billion pounds. However there is a campaign group that wants a different plan, a 3.7 mile long tunnel that will be deeper than standard and will divert completely around the Stonehenge complex. This will, of course, be much more difficult and more expensive to build and run, but the campaigners say it is necessary. The two entrances to the tunnel, which interestingly are termed "portals", would be too close to the site and would have to be dug through subsoil containing an array of archaeological treasures from which we could learn a lot about the people who built Stonehenge and the even more primordial cultures who came before them and made Salisbury Plain their home. There are some springs in the area which drew in a large population during the millennia before Stonehenge and they would have to be drained and channelled away to build the tunnel. The western portal of the tunnel is intended to emerge exactly where the sun rises on the winter solstice and so the artificial mound created together the tunnel lighting would ruin the view of the rising sun on the 21st of December. Is that a coincidence I wonder? See:

This is not the only current threat to the environment around Stonehenge. As I've reported before, the Ministry of Defence's plan to expand the barracks at Larkhill threaten to breach the Stonehenge "sun gap" which will spoil the natural view of the rising sun of the summer solstice on the 21st of June, see: For us to accept that both the natural solstice views are in peril because of modern development pushes coincidence theory beyond its limits, in my view. See here for more information: I wonder if the rising moon will be obscured too by future "building proposals". As Maria Wheatley recently said on HPANWO Radio, Stonehenge may well have begun as a moon-worshiping temple before it became a sun-worshiping one, see: It's almost as if this kind of damage is being done on purpose; deliberately in order to disrupt human enjoyment of ancient sacred sites. It is spiritual vandalism. What's more, a tunnel impaling Mother Earth directly beneath this ancient spiritual centre could have a devastating effect on the ley lines and energy grid of the planet. Again, maybe this is precisely why it is being done. Maybe the Illuminati plan to use the tunnel for satanic rituals. Performing them in the tunnel might get down much deeper into the aetheric body of the planet than ones committed on the surface. Check to see if it's "closed for maintenance" at Halloween or Beltane. Work on the tunnel could begin as early as 2020. I hope that is enough time for us to appeal and stop it before then. I know, it feels as if everything is being thrown at us at once because the "HS2" railway is due to be built round about then and that is something very similar. I have not yet discussed that in detail and I must do so soon. We must stop these dark elitists from wrecking the natural, traditional and spiritual universe of Britain and the human heritage it has treasured from time immemorial.

Interestingly, background technical information on the Stonehenge tunnel indicates that the chalk is atypical of the chalk deposits found elsewhere in the south of England, containing as it does loose sand and silt layers and radioactive phosphates (radon) leading potentially to tunnel collapse and groundwater contamination. (Thus the tunnelling method (EPB) is relatively very expensive compared with simpler, unsupported tunnels in chalk.)
