Northborough Parking Problem Relieved

 

The potentially dangerous practice of parking half-on the footpath has been hugely reduced by ward councillor Peter Hiller’s action to install double yellow lines along the affected Northborough end of the Deeping St James Road in Northborough Village. The Tribune is given to understand that since the parking restriction’s recent implementation the long-standing occurrence has virtually stopped.

 

When contacted by the Tribune, Peter told us: “In addition to numerous complaints I’ve had from nearby residents, concerned pedestrians and wheelchair users about the footpath being blocked by cars parked on it, PCC Highways officers and I had a genuine fear an accident was waiting to happen as drivers were forced to cross the middle line of the road into the path of oncoming traffic to avoid colliding with irresponsibly parked vehicles.” Peter continued, “The bend in the road just after the Lincoln Road junction exacerbated the problem for Deeping Gate bound traffic and, frankly, the situation was unsafe and unacceptable. After a positive feedback from the statutory public consultation the lines marking now makes it illegal to park here. I have instructed the council’s Civil Enforcement Officers to monitor this area weekly, at varied days and times, to ensure compliance. This action, and the recent speed limit reduction from 60mph to 40mph along the long straight section of this road, will I hope improve safety here considerably.”
