Lack of maintenance of double yellow lines causing dangerous parking situation on already narrow North Hinksey Lane.

The problem of excessive dangerous roadside parking on what are technically double yellow lines along North Hinksey Lane between Botley Cemetery and Yarnells Road over the past two months has already been recently reported by multiple people. Unfortunately previous OCC responses are completely misunderstanding the issue. The solution is repainting of the double yellow lines (first established many years ago, but NOT maintained). Until this is addressed, referrals to the local civil enforcement team are useless and a waste of their time. A statement on the timing of the lane marking reinstatement is what is needed.

  • The refurbishment of the double yellow lines is part of the next batch of road marking maintenance works that will be issued shortly, the lines have not been previously refurbished because surface maintenace works needed to be carried out first.

  • Over 20+ contractors vehicles continue to park on North Hinksey Lane over what are technically double yellow lines from 6.30 am to 4.30 pm. This has reduced the lane to effectively a single track road without designated passing places and creating a major hazard for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians, especially with the shortening daylight and winter weather. The lane surface is now even more dangerous as parked vehicles and passing large lorries have cut into the grass banks and are spreading mud onto the road. Will the very overdue designated surface and road marking works be completed within 2018?

  • The refurbishment of the road markings has been ordered but to date we have not been able to do this as surface maintenance works are required before the road marking works can be done, our colleagues are trying to complete the surface repairs but have been unable to do so dueto teh parked vehicles, they are currently working to remedy this
