Remove double yellow lines

Reported via mobile in the General Highways Enquiry category anonymously at 09:00, Saturday 6 February 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

As residents in a non rpz we find it extremely difficult to park in our own neighbourhood due to being the nearest street to the rpz for Montpelier. Coupled with the fact we now have the Brooks' redevelopment site, which will see a massive impact on local parking, we are receiving more parking tickets as a community. The road is a no through road so could the areas I've highlighted in red have their double yellow lines removed, freeing up approximately 8 additional parking spaces? This wouldn't cause an obstruction to the cycle access lane, nor obstruction emergency service access.

  • Would it not just mean that motorists would park on the pavements?

  • In response to the parking on pavement comment, no it wouldn't. The road is being used by residents to park on the double yellows highlighted, due to my original request, & do not park on the pavement on that section of the road as it is wide enough. Coincidentally if you look at the Google Earth download you will see there is a car parked on the double yellows & they're not parked on the pavement and the distance between them & the opposite side of the road parked car clearly shows that

  • You’re right about the google street view. If people parked on both sides of the road (without obstructing any of the pavement) would there still be the minimum required gap needed for the larger vehicles to be driven ie emergency service vehicles/refuse collections, etc? There is probably a reason why the double yellows are on one side, and this might be it. There are guidelines somewhere

  • It is wide enough for bin lorries & emergency services. As we have to park in each side of the road all the time we've never had any issues with receiving these services from this part of the street

  • So if you can park in both sides of the road (without parking on the pavement), and bin lorries can get through when this happens, I can’t see why there’s double yellows. Perhaps the council can confirm why there’s double yellows painted here.

  • This used to be a one way street & was used as a "rat run" to the M32. The Council blocked it off half way along to stop this & turned this one way street into two dead end streets. No other upgrades were made to the street, i.e no addition or removal existing double yellows

  • I rode through this street a couple of times recently and on both occasions I saw that motorists had parked on the pavement. I fear a removal of double yellow lines will only encourage more illegal parking
