“Indiscriminate and careless parking” on the approach to the crossroads made it difficult for emergency services, refuge vehicles and buses to access the road.

The council’s highways department hopes that should the plan be approved, it will prevent “indiscriminate and careless parking”, help traffic flow better, and improve overall safety for pedestrians.
