Want to know more about A419 Stonehouse improvements?
Gloucestershire County Council is hosting two events for residents, commuters and businesses to find out about planned improvement works to the A419 corridor near Stonehouse.
The events will take place on Tuesday 20th and Thursday 22nd June, from 2pm -7:30pm at Stonehouse Town Council offices.
Gloucestershire County Council’s highways team and the contractors Amey will be available to answer questions from residents.
The A419 is an important local route connecting the Stroud Valley with the M5 (J13).
A number of improvements are proposed at:
- Chipmans Platt roundabout
- Oldends Lane roundabout
- Downton Road signalised junction
- Horsetrough roundabout
GCC is currently preparing the business case for the £4.36m scheme to go to the Gloucestershire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) board in August this year. If approved, construction will begin next year once the design work is completed.
Cllr Nigel Moor, cabinet member for fire, planning and infrastructure at Gloucestershire County Council, said: “The council is continuing to improve key parts of our highways network to keep the county moving and growing.
“I hope as many interested local residents as possible will come along and find out about the scheme.”
Cllr Lesley Williams, county councillor for Stonehouse, said: “This is really important to the local area and wider county. The improvements will make it easier for local people to get to work, go to school, and get around generally.”
David Owen, chief executive of GFirst LEP, said: “Within GFirst LEP we recognize that investment in our transport network is an essential element for economic growth. This project will make significant improvements for users of this corridor in terms of access between Stonehouse, Stroud and the M5/A38 and wider road network. It also very much complements the investments the LEP has made at the Berkeley Green site to support development of the Gloucestershire Science and Technology Park, improving journey times and making the site more accessible for businesses, employees and students from the Stroud area.”
