  • This issue continues on a daily basis. Up to 7 cars are being left on the avenue exit, close to the junction with Buckingham road. Vehicles turning into the Avenue are forced to do so 'blind' and vehicles exiting are forced into the oncoming 'blind' traffic. It is only a matter of time until a major accident occurs. The parked cars recently caused a problem when an ambulance was called to the bungalow opposite. The Avenue was completely blocked for at least 45 minutes. Traffic turning in was backed up beyond the Churchill Rd junction and past the Eden Carage.

    Just guessing, but the cars appear to be left by people working or visiting the Eden garage, or those walking to the rail station.

  • A residents parking only sign was installed but then removed on the request of Thames valley police. We will consider this location as part of a wider TRO review.
