Is there any vehicle or ship with active pilot at said position ? If so, that may be a reason.
From what I remember, in the situation like this, construction will be blocked.

i had a ship at the location 1 square to the left or above the build,

then i moved it away to try a different tack.

maybe i need to bugbase this?

Screenshot of your construction page? Looks like from the error that you don't have 2 edges of your facility that you want to construct free of anything (facilities).

"The road in question is at 21, 19"

21, 19 is outside of the build-able area. Don't build a road on the east side there.

I don't particulary care where you're building. According to your first post there was a road selected at 21, 19. That's outside the build area.

Umm, press the Print Screen button on your keyboard (should be just above the End, Page Down/Up keys) and then paste into an image program (paint, photoshop etc) and then upload the image to the internet and paste here.

As for what Ten is saying, when you are chosing the location for where the roads go, you cannot choose a location that is outside the slabbed area - the 1 grid wide border that shows the terrain is sancrosact and cannot be built on, either with facilities or roads, and isn't counted as a road itself. So you still have to include roads elsewhere.
