Dangerous Parking of vehicles around junction of Lower Knole Lane by the Almshouse

Vehicles parking inconsiderately blocking pavements and dropped kerbs. Also causing visibility problems on junctions. Last Friday I had a car nearly drive into the front of my vehicle as I waited to turn into Lower Knole Lane. He was going too fast coming from Epworth Road and couldn't see me for the parked vehicles going around the corner. He ended up mounting the pavement at speed to avoid me. Parking in this area is atrocious during the week due to staff/visitors to the Almshouse and dentist and nursery on Passage Road. Roads affected: Lower Knole Lane entire length, Lower Knole Lane junction with Knole Lane and junction with Epworth Road. Within Lower Knole Lane itself, Large vehicles cannot make it all the way down the road because of poor parking - eg refuse trucks, deliveries - imagine if a fire engine was required?!). Pedestrians and people with mobility scoots and pushchairs are forced to walk in the road. Very dangerous. The possibility of parking restrictions (eg double yellows) needs to be investigated before a serious accident occurs.

  • This issue is still ongoing. A few double yellow lines would help with safety in this dangerous bend. Please take a look.
