Lorrys parking on the pavement and making the road dangerous

Reported anonymously at 20:50, Fri 27 January 2017

Sent to Warwick District Council and Warwickshire County Council 5 minutes later

Large lorries serving the company Groupo Antolin on Tachbrook Park Drive are constantly parking on the road and pavement and obstructing traffic. They have even damaged all of the grass that was on the pavement and it is now just a large mud field! The company should accommodate their lorries on their own site and not use the public road and footpath as a lorry park. It is very dangerous for cyclists and walkers, especially in the dark. It is also a hazard for cars who have to navigate their way through a maze of lorries, cyclists and cars coming in the opposite direction. It's only a matter of time before there is an accident, or even worse, somebody is seriously hurt. The council need to sort this out now!

  • Tachbrook Road is becoming ridiculous at this location, sometime lorrys park, 3 lorrys long which makes getting past at busy times near impossible and sometimes they are staggered as per the attached picture which makes it just as hard to get past.

    Surely adding double yellow lines would solve this problem?
