Request for yellow lines

I find that the turning from Harvest Way in to Woodley Green is quite bad, and then at the other end of Woodley Green on to the crescent-shaped part. There are often cars parked right on the junctions forcing you in to the wrong lane as you approach which is dangerous if a car was to turn in.
I also find the stretch of Harvest Way from Madley Way to Oakmead to be very busy. The junction of Madley Way and Harvest Way is on a bend, and cars park right opposite. Then there is the sharp bend on Harvest Way by the junction to Oakmead where cars coming south on Harvest Way are approaching on the wrong side of the road as cars driving North turn a blind bend. Those are really the only streets I drive on in the estate but I imagine the situation is similar throughout. Yellow lines near junctions would be sensible at least.

Yellow lines. To introduce double yellow lines we need to promote a Traffic Regulation Order. This is a process whereby an Order is drafted by our Legal Department, describing the proposed restriction. This will be advertised during a formal consultation process and comments invited. If no objections are received, the Order can be brought into operation with lining and signs on the ground. If there are objections, these will be reported at the appropriate Committee where a decision will be made taking into account levels of support and objections. The cost for this is £3120 to cover legal work, consultation and associated procedural / administrative functions. On top is the cost of lining and signing work. The County has no resources for this work as a County scheme but is able to pursue if external funding is made available. We work this way with local Towns and Parishes who wish to promote such restrictions. The onus is on them to propose a scheme which suits their local needs and then we can act in an advisory capacity and carry out the required legal aspects. All this can take anywhere from 6 month to a year. You may wish to take this up with your local Parish or Town Council who may be aware of other similar requests. One further point and potential problem with a scheme in such a location is that during the consultation we are likely to receive many objections from local residents who, should the scheme be implemented, would be prevented from parking outside their homes. If this were the case the scheme would likely be rejected at the committee hearing.
