Double yellow lines for two Lincoln roads to improve access

Double yellow lines will be enforced on two Lincoln industrial estate roads after a number of businesses complained about the level of on-street parking.

Lincolnshire County Council will implement ‘no waiting at any time’ restrictions along Kingsley Road and Sadler Road, with plans for a June 2015 enforcement.

The plans were agreed at a Planning and Regulation Committee Meeting on Monday, March 16, following two objections and two letters of support for the proposal, during consultation between December 2014 and February 2015.

A number of businesses previously raised concerns about the number of parked cars in the area, causing difficulties for passing traffic, particularly large delivery vehicles and car transporters.

Councillor Richard Davies, Executive Councillor for Highways and Transportation at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “Through our sustainable transport project Access LN6, we’ve been working closely with businesses in the area, so when they raised concerns about the problems caused by parked cars – we worked with them and our highways team to find a solution to the problem.

“We hope that implementing this parking restriction will allow for better traffic flow along Kingsley Road and Sadler Road, as well as a safer route for car users and cyclists on the road.”

James Kirby, Managing Director at Stirlin Developments Ltd., which is currently developing the former Rakon site on Sadler Road, said: “The approval to implement parking restrictions on Kingsley and Sadler Road is positive news.

“The current situation is far from ideal, and causes serious access and safety issues. Improving accessibility by removing vehicles parked on the roadside will improve the area, and aid the development of Dowsett House, and other sites in the vicinity.”
