Cars parked on Blue bell Way too close to Willow Drive

Cars park on Bluebell Way right up to the the Willow Drive turning on both sides. I have nearly had two accidents driving down Bluebell Way due to drivers pulling out of Willow Drive. Cars turning out of Willow Drive cannot see traffic in either direction due to cars parked on Bluebell Way. They have to pull out blind in order to see if anything is coming. Yellow lines or No Parking zones are needed either side of the Willow Drive turning to prevent this.

  • Unfortunately this morning i have had a car accident whilst pulling out of Willow Drive and entering onto Bluebell Way as a result of too many cars being parked all along Bluebell Way and obscuring the view from either side of Willow Drive.

    When exiting Willow drive you are unable to see any oncoming traffic until it is too late and this happened this morning and as a result i had to reverse back into Willow Drive where unfortunately due to more cars being park along the entrance to Willow Drive i was unable to see the car approaching from behind until it was too late.

    This is a very dangerous situation especially when it is 9am/3pm (School run times). It was 08:50 AM this morning when i had a collision with another car. I had my daughter in the back as did the other car involved in the accident.Many families and their children also cross over this entrance/exit to get to school which only increases the danger of an accident occurring.

    Luckily today it was a minor incident but will it take serious injury to life for the council to improve this stretch of road and the problems the parked cars cause? I have lived on Bluebell way for 10 years now and the traffic/parking on this road has always been awful but it has increased significantly over the years.

    I would suggest putting double yellow lines all the way up Bluebell way to prevent this happening in future and it is essential yellow lines are installed by Willow Drive. Its is so dangerous, i do not want to see children/adults killed on this road for the problems outlined above.
