Parking in street during working hours

Employees of companies ( Halliburton in particular) in this street regularly park on North side of the road during the working day. This results in the road effectively becoming a single lane road for much of the day. Quite often resulting in traffic entering the industrial estate and having negotiated the corner leading into this straight with traffic on their side of the road. This inevitability leads to congestion and increased risk for all road users. The company in question has adequate parking accommodation within its premises for all employees, but many choose not to use the provided onsite parking spaces, but choose to park in the road. There is no direction or incentive form the company to direct staff otherwise. My understanding is also that planning permission for the building stipulated that staff park onsite rather than in the road, I am unsure if this is still the case , but common sense would suggest that best practice would be to encourage staff to park in the parking places provided rather than the road.
