Yellow lines are faded and need repainting in Bishop Kirk Place.

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

I reported this problem in May 2019 and it seemed to get listed for action by the council, the road was marked up for painting, but nothing then got done. I'm concerned that there is going to be a serious accident at the junction of Woodstock Rd and Bishop Kirk Place, due to badly parked vehicles.

The double and single yellow lines in Bishop Kirk Place are faded and near the entrance to the road appear to have been painted incorrectly the last time they were done (which must have been many years ago).

The poor condition of the lines is probably one of the reasons why parents dropping off / picking up children at the nearby Dragon School often leave their cars on the pavements, obstructing driveways or dangerously close to the junction with the main road. There have been several accidents at that junction in the last few years and there is quite likely to be a serious accident there at some point, given the illegal parking and number of children about.
