Parking too close to central bollard

Reported via mobile in the General Highways Enquiry category anonymously at 19:47, Tuesday 13 April 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

The yellow lines outside no. 2 Victoria avenue end too soon in relation to central reservation and bollard, so non residents use this small space to park despite it causing issues for large vehicles to be able to get thru chicane, often resulting in smashed bollard, or cars front corners being smashed off. They also often park so far onto pavement that pedestrians with prams and wheelchairs must go into road to pass. This space is very small as there is an existing disabled bay not far from yellow line ends, and this results in those cars parking against the disabled vehicles bumper rendering wheelchair user unable to get disabled vehicle out. The issues this small space causes for adjacent residents are un necessary and need addressing please, With either extension of yellow lines, white zig zags, or chevrons to indicate cutting in prior to chicane and bollard, therefore rendering this dangerous small spot unavailable for parking. This would alleviate many issues for residents living in the immediate vicinity. Adjacent residents do not park here due to damage to vehicles and blocking exit for large and emergency vehicles to pass. Thank you for your help in this matter.

  • Van parked here presently meaning cars having to mount kerb with bollard on to pass. There is no way a fire engine or ambulance would get through in an emergency. Please fix this issue. Chevron painted here stopping parking and indicating chicane needed.
