On Haigh Road, cars often park at the junction with Wood Lane. This junction has a large flowerbed (resembling a roundabout) at the juncture. When cars park inappropriately the buses which come up Wood Lane and then turn right onto Haigh Road cannot always get round the corner if cars are parked, and they end up usually beeping their horn (with no response) and then having to do a multi-point turn to get round. I am surprised the bus company have not complained about this. There is a shop on the corner (Sashes and Tashes) and lamppost no. 3HW857. The small stretch of road which runs from the telegraph pole after this lamp (at end of street leading to Alpine Terrace), past No 1 Haigh Road, up to lamppost 2H10 would benefit from a double yellow line which would remedy this problem and would not cause inconvenience or further parking problems as it is only a short stretch.
Although this problem was acknowledged, it could not be fixed without great expense. This was explained adequately and has been accepted.
