Queues for McDonalds Drivethru

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 16:41, Friday 2 March 2018

Sent to West Sussex County Council 4 minutes later

Queues for McDonald’s Drivethru blocks both the entrance/exit to Station Road Car Park and the roundabout on Queen Elizabeth Avenue/Station Road.

This causes traffic to back up quickly from every direction.

It also stops people entering the car park, I was late to collect my 5 year old from school today because I couldn’t get into the car park. Parents of St Wilfrids School have a parking permit for drop off/pick up which we are encouraged to use to stop bad parking in The Brow/School Close and Halfords.

Since the refurbishment last month the problem has got worse and something needs to be done before there is an accident. Small children cross there on their way to/from school and are having to walk between traffic sometimes which is dangerous.

I did email WSCC about this last year but never got a response.

  • The problem still exists, the queues are stopping traffic at all the roads who meet at the roundabout. It even stops cars exiting the Waitrose car park. Since the refurbishment things have got worse and something needs to be done.

  • Problem still exists and McDonald’s customers block the entrance/exit to Station Road Car Park too. There’s regular queuing traffic and bottlenecks caused by the Drive-through. This problem has been worse since the refit in Jan/Feb this year.

  • Still the queues blocking the roundabout and/or entrance/exit to/from Station Road car park.

    It makes it difficult to safely cross the road and this is a school route for a Primary School, parents have a parking permit for this car park.

    It’s dangerous and waiting for an accident either pedestrian or vehicular to happen.
