    The A4173 was identified by the Department for Transport as a major road that would benefit from investment to improve safety and road conditions.

    This final stage of improvements to the A4173 comprised alterations to the Pitchcombe Junction where it meets the A46. The junction had a long record of collisions and near misses due to restricted forward visibility and, while some works had been implemented to improve safety, it continued to cause confusion even for local residents.

    The scheme provided a simplified and recognisable junction layout with a dedicated right-turn lane for traffic on the A46 to access the A4173 safely, improving visibility for users exiting the Halfway Pitch junction, and slowing ‘through’ vehicles using kerbed refuges and narrower running lanes.

    Additional features included improved pedestrian access to bus stops, a new bus shelter, enhanced street lighting and signage. Environmental mitigation works introduced a toad crossing to aid Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust and local volunteers during the annual toad migration.

    our sectors

    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.

    The team at Knights Brown has done a fantastic job in creating the largest JLR Aftersales Centre in the UK, working alongside GEMCO Sales & Service who fitted out the facility to the highest standard. With 29 service bays in total, Dorset is now future-proofed for servicing the JLR product.

    Sites are always very well presented. First impressions count and if a site looks well organised and clean when you arrive then generally this is applied throughout the management of the projects. Indeed, all five projects I am Cummins PM for, have been managed to a high standard and equally the safety records and standards are very good.
