In southern England’s Wiltshire county, the A344 toll road that ran next to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Stonehenge has been closed and will be torn up and planted over with grass as part of a refurbishment project designed to protect the entire site and improve visitors’ experience. 

Plans include removing the tall fence, installing new paths and landscaping and building a new visitors’ center. Upon completion in summer 2014, a shuttle bus from the visitor center will take visitors 1½ miles along a portion of the old road, letting them walk the final path up to the ancient stones.
