Councillors have voted for tighter parking restrictions outside a primary school in Bardney due to traffic safety concerns.
There was a serious crash on the road last week and a local councillor said it was ‘very lucky’ no pedestrians had been hurt yet.
Bardney Primary School requested the parking restrictions at the junction of Harvey Kent Gardens and Henry Lane.
It’s hoped that double yellow lines will discourage drivers from parking in the area, causing difficulties for pedestrians crossing the road.
A mandatory School Keep Clear marking has also been approved outside the newly opened school entrance.
The proposal prompted two objections from residents, one of which is a Blue Badge holder and required parking close to their property.
They feared that these new measures would result in the displacement of parking to the area outside their properties, obstructing their ability to park close to their homes.
Bardney and Cherry Willingham County Councillor Ian Fleetwood (Conservative) welcomed the proposal, as a serious collision involving a tanker and a car took place on the road in the last week.
He said: “It’s very lucky that the incidents have only been metal to metal so far.
“I am very keen to get this into place as soon as possible.”
The committee also voted to approve tighter parking restrictions on Mayfield Crescent in Louth as visibility is being obstructed by drivers leaving their vehicles parked on the road while going into the near Spar shop.
Councillors also voted for 30mph speed limits on West Ashby 153 Main Street and Horncastle Road, the A1175 Deeping St Nicholas and the Market Deeping, Stamford Road and Millfield Road.
