Persistent obstructive parking on busy residential intersection of Herbert crescent and Gloucester street

Reported in the Car parking category anonymously at 20:42, Tue 2 June 2020

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Persistent obstructive parking on residential intersection. Parking has been consistent overnight for months, blocking access to housing, bin access, and forcing pedestrians into oncoming traffic. Intersection has seen an increase in traffic due to close by roadworks, and being nearby eastville park during social distancing measures also an increase in pedestrians. Parking also denies van access and makes u-turns exceedingly difficult.

  • Gloucester street is still being used a shortcut/bypass. We have people speeding in excess of 30mph daily. The corner intersection of Herbert crescent and Gloucester street is constantly obstructed, forcing pedestrians into oncoming traffic. The one way entrance from fishponds road is a gradual corner, making it impossible for speeding motorists to view ahead. The obstructive parking forces vans/delivery trucks/garbage trucks to do 12 point U turns as there is no warning further up the street that there is a one way end to the street, nor any tonnage limit. There have been several near accidents recently, and it regularly produces instances of road rage between motorists, including blaring horns at late and early hours. Complaints to neighbors about their obstructive parking are fruitless as parking is at a premium during lockdown. Please paint double yellow lines on the curbs as to help prevent the inevitable pedestrian accident and to allow the residents of this street to feel comfortable walking outside of their front doors.
