Meet the contractor improving journeys through Stonehouse
Gloucestershire County Council has awarded the A419 Stonehouse highways improvements contract to Knights Brown, and residents, road users and local businesses can meet them at two events taking place this week.
Crews will be starting improvement work on the first of four junctions in Stonehouse on 11 March, but before the first spade hits the ground two 'meet the contractor' events are happening on 5 and 6 March:
Tuesday 5 March 4-7pm
Kings Head House Hotel, Bath Road, Eastington, Stonehouse GL10 3AA
Wednesday 6 March 3–7pm
Stonehouse Town Hall, High Street, Stonehouse GL10 2NG
The A419 Stonehouse scheme will help reduce congestion and improve traffic flow at all key junctions along the A419 corridor, from the M5 in the west through to Stroud in the east. The works will be focused around four key junctions: Chipmans Platt roundabout, Oldends Lane roundabout, Downton Road signalised junction and Horsetrough roundabout.
Members of the site team will be available at the events to talk about the scheme, traffic management plans and details on how residents and road users can find out more information throughout the works. Staff from the council’s highways team will also be on hand to answer any questions.
Cllr Nigel Moor, cabinet member for planning and infrastructure at Gloucestershire County Council, said: “We are continuing to improve key parts of our highways network and the A419 Stonehouse is the next major scheme needed to help keep the county moving.
“I hope as many local residents as possible will come along and find out more about the work.”
Cllr Lesley Williams, county councillor for Stonehouse, said: “These improvements will make it easier for local people to get to work, go to school, and get around generally in the long run. I encourage anyone who lives nearby or uses this road on their commute to go along and find out more about this important scheme.”
David Owen, CEO said “GFirst LEP is pleased to support this important infrastructure project for the county, this ‘key corridor’ will support growth in the Stroud district and improve the travelling experience of local residents.”
