The powers to be should put up covert cameras to catch the **c**g idiots to slow down and even stop to take photos from their car of those bloody stones.

It was absolute chaos there on Friday, with traffic backed right back to the roundabout at Amesbury, just because of people slowing up when they see a pile of stones. 😡😡😡

To put those stones so close to a major road was sheer stupidity!

Can't help wondering why the modern road-builders didn't skirt round it a bit more widely - then they wouldn't have needed to consider spending millions on tunnels etc. Must be infuriating for people who need to use that road regularly.

Think they built the road close to the stones so the tourists could keep an eye on them in case the locals pinched them for building material for their houses. 🙄

I drove past Stonehenge on the A303 a few weeks ago in both directions with no problems at all. In fact it was much better traffic wise than it used to be when there was a right turn off the A303 onto what I think was the old A360 (now blocked off at that point) which passed the stones. That used to be a bottleneck.

Perhaps the chaos on this occasion was due to people now trying to find a way into the stones which didn't seem well signposted when I passed.

I agree with Mike3003, it is a bit silly putting the stones there, it is a bit like building Windsor Castle under a flight path!

On the old road you could stop in the carpark to use WC and see the stones years ago you could go go in free had many achievements on the stones (Picnics)

Only tourist attraction??

Isn't that vehicle dismantling place in Wiltshire... the one you drive through and the animals dismantle your car for you as you drive through?
