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.
