Nearly 30 roads in Filton will have double yellow lines and in some cases daytime no waiting under proposals being put forward by South Glos Council.

The council says the purpose of this scheme is to restrict dangerous areas of parking, maintain visibility at accesses and junctions, whilst ensuring that there is adequate parking provision for residents and visitors accessing the local shops, and businesses.

The scheme would prohibit vehicles waiting at any time (double yellow lines) in lengths of Blenheim Drive, Boverton Road, Branksome Crescent, Branksome Drive, Bridgman Grove, Bude Road, Canberra Grove, Charles Road, Cleve Road, Conygre Grove, Conygre Road, Cul-de-Sac off Filton Avenue, Filton Avenue, Glebelands Road, Holmdale Road, Lower House Crescent, Mayville Avenue, Meadowsweet Avenue, Rectory Lane, Rodney Crescent, Sandown Road, Station Road, The Mead, Ventnor Road, Wades Road, Warren Road and also Whittle Close, Stoke Gifford.

It would also prohibit vehicles waiting Monday-Saturday 9am-6pm lengths of Blenheim Drive, Boverton Road, Conygre Road, Filton Avenue, Meadowsweet Avenue and Rodney Crescent

And the plans would restrict vehicles waiting during specified days and times (limited waiting bays) in lengths of Blenheim Drive, Conygre Road and Rectory Lane.

It is proposed to introduce the no waiting at any time restrictions (double yellow lines) to cover junctions/accesses and areas where traffic parking can reduce visibility and impact safety, and where access to service vehicles such as refuse lorries is currently hampered due to indiscriminate parking.

The proposals include the conversion of existing advisory white keep clear markings, to no waiting at any time restrictions (however keep clear lines across private drives are generally not included).

A consultation on the proposals ends on March 11. Details here.
