Parked vehicles obstructing the bus stop

Hi Philip Just to let you know our 47 Local Bus drivers have alerted me of a parking problem at Ashbury. When the bus is stopped at the Rose and Crown bus stop there are often cars parked directly opposite the stop. During this time no other traffic can get by. This has caused a few problems. Is there anything that can be done to restrict car parking opposite the Rose and Crown? Regards Matthew Matthew Metcalfe Senior Transport Services Officer Transport Services Team West Berkshire Council Market Street Newbury RG14 5LD (01635) 519663 / Ext 2663 /

  • Thank you for your report. It would require the installation of formal waiting restrictions (yellow lines) to prevent parking at this location, this procedure requires the implementation of a Traffic Regulation Order which involves a long and expensive legal process including full consultation, I regret that Oxfordshire County Council could not fund such a scheme at this time.

    State changed to: No further action
