    The A419 is a route of local importance connecting the Stroud valley with the wider strategic network, in particular to the M5, which provides connections for freight and other traffic to Bristol, Gloucester and the remainder of the UK.

    The project comprised four small junction improvement schemes within the A419 corridor to the east of the M5 between Junction 13 and Stonehouse.

    • Chipmans Platt Roundabout: Widening of the A419 eastbound and westbound entries and exits, improvements to the national cycle route and upgraded street lighting, signing and lining.
    • Oldends Lane Roundabout: Widening of Oldends Lane approach, pedestrian / cycle toucan crossing, modifications to the island geometry and improved signing and lining.
    • Downton Road Signals: Widening of the westbound carriageway between Horsetrough roundabout and Downton Road signals.
    • Horsetrough Roundabout: Creation of a segregated left turn lane, extension of the two lane approach to the roundabout, and an off carriageway cycle route around the roundabout perimeter.

    Starting from Chipmans Platt Roundabout, the works progressed sequentially west to east along the A419 corridor over the course of a year.

    Our remit included a prolific community liaison effort complete with meet the contractor event and extensive public information signage.

    This complex and challenging project was a collaborative undertaking from the outset. Combining two projects was inspirational, saving not only money but diverting 22,000m3 from landfill. Some extremely innovative tools and methods were used to demolish the pier, recover material and to achieve the lowest environmental impact on one of the most environmentally designated places in the UK.

    Knights Brown performed very well on this project in terms of quality, cost and time. The team worked very well as part of an integrated delivery team with the Employer to the benefit of the project

    - Marc Bryan, Portsmouth City Council

    Knights Brown was a great client to deal with. We felt from the very outset that they worked with us rather than for us, demonstrating real collaboration in order to minimise disruption to the port. The works were also delivered through a very challenging time, with the latter stages coinciding with the COVID-19 pandemic. Their approach to this was thoroughly professional, with health and safety the primary consideration. Working practices were strictly amended and monitored, with the project completed to the satisfaction of all involved.
