A419 – Knights Brown update

The toucan crossings at Chipmans Platt and Oldends Lane will be commissioned week commencing 23 March 2020, and the footpath surfacing will be completed this week.

We will be installing new road crossings along Downton Road this month and we are hoping to complete the majority of the works during the day. It may however be necessary to carry out some of the works during the night. If this does happen we will let you know. To ensure this is undertaken safely we will be implementing pedestrian diversions.

Works to construct the splitter island at Horsetrough will continue and the alignment of traffic will be altered .


In partnership with the Stonehouse History Group we have moved the milestone marker at Downton Road to a new agreed location and have donated a new plaque which will be installed shortly.

We are also in the process of relocating the Horsetrough at Horsetrough Roundabout to ensure it is preserved for future generations.
We are pleased to announce that the A419 scheme has been shortlisted for a Considerate Constructors Award.
