A303 Boreholes Show The Planned Route

The excellent BGS webpage Geology of Britain has links to borehole reports as well as to the underlying geology.

If you try the links on the new boreholes to the north of Winterbourne Stoke (on the BGS website) it shows they are from the Stage 2 of the A303 investigation and the results aren't available (yet?) and some are confidential...

But I think we can see the routes they are thinking of.

The bright green splodges are the phosphatic chalk deposits.
