Knights Brown – A419 Improvements

As part of our ongoing commitment to work closely with local community, our site team visited Eastington primary school in July, ahead of the school holidays. The team delivered a safety assembly telling the children about the dangers of construction sites to make sure they stayed safe over the Summer weeks. As part of the visit, the children were treated to a special guest appearance from Honor Goodsite, one of the Considerate Constructors mascots. She helped us to promote construction and engineering as a career – we hope to have inspired some future engineers!

To ensure our programme remains on schedule and to mitigate any delays, we have begun enabling works at Old Ends Lane. These preparatory works will allow us to ensure that work progresses efficiently with minimal delays. The enabling works at Old Ends Lane will be undertaken as day work and will continue until October. There will be a requirement to undertake some night works .

Knights Brown and Gloucester County Council are committed to ensuring that the works undertaken as part of this scheme on the A419 have minimal impact on the local environment. We are proud to announce that our commitment to protecting the conservation verges found at Chipmans Platt has been cited as an example of best practice on the Considerate Constructors website.
