Walker Street and Myrtle Road were both resurfaced over 2 months ago but despite spray paint on the pavement to show where the road markings should go, none have been repainted. So instead there is a parking fee-for-all, including in parts where there were double yellow lines. This blocks the traffic and is a risk to pedestrians. Why hasn’t this been sorted already given the resurfacing was completed so long ago? It has to be completed before the students return otherwise there will be even more parking chaos.
This problem is now dangerous. traffic is building on Alfred Place due to dangerous congestion in Walker street with the absence of double yellow lines and polluting a residential area.

The road markings were repainted at the end of September, just before the university term restarted. Although it can still be challenging to get down Myrtle Road and Walker Street by car given the parking and narrowness of the road, it’s far better since the parking bays and double yellows have been reinstated. Just still frustrating that it took so long after the resurfacing to be sorted.
