Double yellow lines needed - Lockstile Way/Wallingford Road junction
Reported in the Road Traffic Signs and Road Markings category by Mike Ward Assistant Parish Clerk at 11:40, Tuesday 11 February 2020
Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later. Council ref: 1991622.
Vehicles are constantly parking very close to this junction causing an obstruction. Large vehicles, e.g. school buses and delivery vans have great problems negotiating it. Following complaints from residents, the Parish Council at its meeting on 10th February 2020 agreed to request that double yellow lines be placed for a distance of 20 metres along Lockstile Way on both sides from this junction with Wallingford Road. This will dissuade people from parking there, and enable the police to take action should someone choose to ignore the restriction.
Thank you for your enquiry. This issue has been passed onto the relevant team for investigation.

The installation of formal waiting restrictions (yellow lines) requires the implementation of a ‘Traffic Regulation Order’, this involves a long and expensive legal process including public consultation, I regret that Oxfordshire County Council do not currently have the available funding for such a scheme.
We would suggest that an initial approach is made to your Parish Council so that due consideration can be given towards its priority within the local area and so that the proposal can be endorsed and promoted locally. Parish Councils are also well placed to secure the necessary financial cost to such a scheme.
It should also be noted that vehicles parking in a dangerous position are committing an offence under Section 22 of the Road Traffic Act 1998 which should be reported to Thames Valley Police
State changed to: No further action
