Commuters parking cars on both siides of the road

In the past few months there has been significant increase in the number of inconsiderate commuters parking their cars on both sides of the road on Albemarle Road which is causing a serious bottleneck. From 8am to 6pm the road is reduced to a single car width. Visibility of cars pulling out from driveways has been reduced and aggressive driving down the single car width bottleneck is resulting in near misses. A serious accident appeared to have occurred in the past few weeks with the back of a car being entirely destroyed.

Albemarle Road (west of the Westgate Road intersection) has a single yellow line on both sides of the road and which allows for smooth safe traffic flow. Please could this single yellow line be extended on one side of the road on the eastern side of the intersection to alleviate the problem.
