Tunnel vision

Construction of the UK’s longest road tunnel under land, on the A3 near Hindhead, Surrey, is a step closer after the tunnel excavations from the north and south met deep under the Surrey Hills.

When complete, the £371 million road will enable the Highways Agency to remove all traces of the existing road from the Devil’s Punch Bowl, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
