Double Yellow Lines Proposed for Washinghton Drive and Hickings Lane, Stapleford
Great news to report with regards parking problems at the junction of Washington Drive and Hickings Lane.
Nottinghamshire County Council have proposed new traffic regulation orders for Washinghton Drive and Hickings Lane in Stapleford as indicated on the picture above.
They include double yellow lines and a bus stop clearway with no parking (except buses) at any time, opposite Washington Drive.
These proposals are currently out for consultation with replies required by 1st September.
Notices will soon be put up around the locations and we will also post a link where you can comment on the proposals.
Stapleford Councillor Richard MacRae who has been campaigning for this to happen since last summer is very happy with the proposals and is asking that local residents send in comments on the proposal of your support as soon as details are available.
His only concern is that the double yellow lines should be extended to the junction of Ilkeston Road as many people are parking outside the new shops instead of using the on site Car Park and this is a very busy road.
He went on to say that if Nottinghamshire County Council are going to paint double yellow lines then they may as well do the whole road which does need to be done.
If you agree please put that in your replies to the proposals.
