Issue Summary

Visibility on Lower Road in Quidhampton

 

Latest Update

05/06/2018 10:40:32 Issue closed - originator advised to liaise with Parish Council / local Councillor


05/06/2018 10:23:45 Update from Quidhampton PC: Quidhampton PC considered this request at the meeting last week. It resolved not to support the request as all lanes, roads and closes that exit onto Lower Rd have similar issues and it is also aware that parking is an issue and to put in yellow lines will make the parking issues worse.


28/03/2018 10:52:28 Parish Council asked to provide response to issue/suggested action


27/03/2018 14:56:32 Issue sent to Highways Engineer for initial response.

Electoral Division

Wilton and Lower Wylye Valley

Issue Duration

5 years

Who is Affected

ALL RESIDENTS THAT LIVE IN HAMPTON COURT AND VISITORS EXITING THE CLOSE.

What has been done so far

SPOKEN TO OWNERS OF VEHICLES WHO HAVE PARKED COMPLETELY ON THE PAVEMENT ON THE LEFT HAND CORNER OBLITERATING THE SIGNAGE FOR HAMPTON COURT ONTO LOWER ROAD. HAVE EXPLAINED IT CAUSES A BLIND SPOT AND ONE HAS TO DRIVE HALFWAY ONTO LOWER ROAD ITSELF TO BE ABLE TO SEE BEYOND THE FRONT OF THEIR PARKED CAR IN ORDER TO SEE WHAT IS COMING FROM THE LEFT. IT ALSO MAKES IT DIFFICULT DRIVING INTO HAMPTON COURT. I CONSIDER THIS SITUATION TO BE A THREAT TO LIFE ESPECIALLY WITH THE SNOW RECENTLY. I HAVE WITNESSED SEVERAL OCCASIONS NEAR MISSES WHERE CARS HAVE ALMOST COLLIDED POSSIBLY CAUSING A MAJOR ACCIDENT.

What would resolve issue

DOUBLE YELLOW LINES ALONG THE ROAD ON THE WHOLE LEFT HAND SIDE CORNER IN FRONT OF THE SIGN FOR HAMPTON COURT EXITING HAMPTON COURT AND GOING AROUND TO THE LEFT LEADING ONTO LOWER ROAD FOR AS FAR AS POSSIBLE PLEASE.

Who needs to come together

I AM NOT FAMILIAR WITH WHICH GROUPS WOULD BE INVOLVED.
