Insufficient signage for no through road. Tight narrow turning angle at top of road. Leading to multiple accidents

Excluding signage is not sufficient to stop people driving up battersea road to try to access other roads or turn around. The top of the road is very narrow, tapers off on diagonal angle. There is no allocated turning area in the road at the top and cars are always parked on both sides. I live at the top and regularly have to help stranded motorists that have tried to turn and got stuck or worse damaged parked cars at the top. This is an issue that has been around since 2010 when I first moved here at least. At the bottom of the road by Chelsea road there is a dead end sign on the street but this is not visible enough and needs to be clear that it's not just a dead end but impossible to turn safely and you'll need to reverse all the way back down if you go up there!!! Assume there isn't a sign that says that!?

Suggested solutions from neighbors which ive consulted include: 1. Write 'dead end'on the road itself in big letters 2. Add free text to the dead end sign 'no turning possible' and make it illuminated 3. Have a flashing sign saying 'no through road'

We're up for other suggestions. At the moment, it's getting worse and people are having unnecessary accidents on average once a week. Most are being sorted out privately so won't show on insurance records
