Dangerous Parking along Wyndham Crescent

Reported via desktop in the General Highways Enquiry category anonymously at 20:30, Saturday 10 July 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

There is consistent double parking along the whole length of Wyndham Crescent with frequent blocking of emergency vehicles. This is exacerbate by the increase in visitors to Eastwood Farm and Beese's Tea Gardens. There are a large number of elderly residents in this neighbourhood and ambulance access is needed pretty much on a daily basis. People double park, park across dropped driveways and private accesses and on pavements making it impossible for residents, and pedestrians to navigate the road safely.

  • This street issue is getting worse, several cars have now been hit up on the corner from Wyndham crescent into Eastwood crescent. This is because this corner is blind spot and you cannot see around the corner in time to apply your brakes. The answer to this must be to make it a one way entry from Eastwood crescent into Wyndham crescent. This will stop the many people coming along Wyndham crsecent , turning right into Beeses tea gardens, which is the main cause of these incidents with cars being hit. Double yellow lines need to be added on the right hand side coming into Wyndham crescent form Eastwood crescent. This will stop people parking opposite neighbors drives and double parking along with people parking fully on the pavements, i mean all four wheels parked on the pavement. How can a pedestrian get by with a car parked in this way. Adding these lines will ensure the emergency services can get through to their location quickly , as peoples lives could be in danger if they cant . I hope these measures can be done as quick as possible to make Wyndham crescent safer.
