for double yellow lines in Burnham-On-Sea's Priory Gardens
Burnham-On-Sea resident has this week called on councillors to do
more to stop 'traffic chaos' along a busy road in the town.
Gardens resident Dinah Jephcott, pictured, spoke out at Monday's
meeting of the Town Council's Town Projects Committee.
said: "I would like to propose that double yellow lines are
put in place along Priory Gardens Road half way along, where the
road bends from Boniface Walk."
reason is that where the council implemented double yellow lines
not long ago, a new problem has been created further down the road
because it's on the bend where all the cars are parking."
view is restricted when you drive around the bend and so when a
car comes from the opposite direction it comes upon you quickly.
There is an accident waiting to happen."
the cars meet each other on the road, because of the cars parked
on the bend, this creates a single lane."
having double yellow lines there, it will stop parking and create
a passing point for cars to pull in and pass each other safely."
council's committee chairman, Cllr Michael Clarke, who previously
lived in that area of Burnham, thanked Mrs Jephcott and responded:
"The traffic issues in Priory Gardens have been brought up
several times by this council and we are working hard behind the
scenes to try and alleviate them."
