Remains fail to block road

An access road in Herefordshire has been backed despite the discovery of archeological remains under the site (Planning, 3 August, p6).

Herefordshire Council approved the Rotherwas access road last week. It argued that it is vital for the completion of the £20 million Rotherwas Futures project to transform the town's industrial estate.

Diverting the road to avoid the Rotherwas Ribbon, a path thought to date back to the era of Stonehenge, could cost up to £110 million, it said.

The site will instead be covered with layers of protective sand on the advice of English Heritage, it added.
