You can’t park here, drivers told

Barnack Road, Stamford, where yellow lines are to be painted to stop motorists parking their cars near junctions

Barnack Road, Stamford, where yellow lines are to be painted to stop motorists parking their cars near junctions

Double yellow lines will be painted at several places along residential roads to improve safety for both drivers and pedestrians.

Lincolnshire County Council will introduce waiting restrictions at numerous points in Barnack Road and Water Street, Stamford.

A report to Monday’s planning and regulation committee said the measures were needed as drivers were parking too close to junctions on the northern side of the road.

This was making it difficult for people to see as they pulled out of junctions, and was also resulting in vehicles mounting the verge on the southern side of the road.

A spokesman for the council said: “We are introducing these waiting restrictions in the interest of public safety and to improve visibility for drivers.”

The double yellow lines will be painted on the corners of every junction, from Park Lane and Maltings Yard to Park View.

Restrictions would also be introduced along Barnack Road to the east of Daniel Court, and along the eastern side of Water Street until Welland Mews. And a two hour parking zone with no return within one hour would be in force between 9am and 4pm outside Cummins Generator Technologies.

The restrictions were put to public consultation, with amendments made to the initial proposals after comments from emergency services, transport firms, the public and interested parties.

The council will now advertise the changes before they come into force. To see a map of the proposals visit http://lincolnshire.moderngov.co.uk/ieListDocuments.aspx?MId=4020
