Double yellow lines are appearing in places where they may not be needed: notably on Thames Street opposite St George’s Junior School. Many residents feel that single yellows with no waiting at school drop-off times are all that’s required here.
PP&DRA has long campaigned to have double yellow lines on dangerous corners, where they are essential to give safe visibility — especially around the junction of Grotto Road with Thames Street.
But with such limited local space for on-street parking, north Weybridge cannot afford to have ‘no parking at any time’ on long stretches of road, away from junctions, in places where where parking is not a safety issue.
We gather that further double yellow lines, away from junctions and with no apparent justification on grounds of safety, may be appearing in the coming year. We have urged our County Councillor to try to reverse this at the next review, and ensure that in future double yellow lines are used only in places where there is a strong safety case.
