Request installation of 'yellow box' at junction.

Due to the impending Heworth roundabout works, would it be possible to install a yellow box to help allow residents leaving the estate from the Ridgeway junction join the main carriageway. This can be problematic enough now with the near-continuous flow of traffic cutting through from Lingey Lane and when there is a gap, the other lane is full of queued traffic preventing you pulling out. This will become far worse once the Heworth Roundabout works start. Parking enforcement for cars parking within 10 meters of the junction would also help make this junction safer and easier to use.
