Claremont Gardens: Double yellow lines needed

Reported via mobile in the Parking on double yellow lines category anonymously at 20:33, Saturday 24 February 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council 1 day, 12 hours, 51 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 5626377.

Recently “no parking on the verge” signs were put up on one side of the road, with a single yellow line, meaning that at certain times, cars can park on the road, however in doing so, they will be parked directly opposite a row of legally parked cars and will block the road. The grey mini blocked the road and damage was caused to the car parked opposite and a van, that tried to squeeze through. The mini driver parked after the car opposite, and was the one that blocked the road. Please put double yellow lines in place of the single yellow to stop the road being blocked again, or allow parking on the verge again - there is so little parking in our road, that it might be better to allow parking with 2 wheels on the pavement again.

Updates

  • This has been passed to the Highway Officer to investigate, they will carry out an inspection within the next 10 working days.

    All our roads are subject to safety inspections, and this includes identifying any markings that are badly damaged or degraded so we may already be aware of this issue and have raised a job to have them refreshed if this is the case we will update you that it is a duplicate job/enquiry.

    If we were not aware of this issue, we will update you on what action will be taken, this may include adding the road markings to a package of works to be carried out at a later date.

    Please note, the ambient temperature drops, and the air becomes much more humid during the winter months and materials won’t bond with the surface when it’s wet, defeating the purpose of applying them at all. Adding markings to a wet surface will essentially mean they become diluted. The moisture present on the road and also in the air will affect the finished quality of the markings, impacting their appearance and longevity, for this reason we only refresh road markings during winter months if there is a specific safety issue.

    There may also be occasions when the issue reported will not be repaired as it has been classified as a minor defect and does not pose any risk to either the safety or the integrity of the highway, these are called minimum recording levels as specified in our Highways Safety Inspection Policy in these cases no action will be taken.
