Tuesday, 16 August 2016 21:26
Taken from a Wilkins Kennedy Email.
We will report the comments and objections that we receive about these proposals to the parking team manager, who, in consultation with the chairman/vice chairman of the local committee and the county councillor for the area, will consider them all and decide how to proceed. We will also publish a summary of the comments and objections and the outcomes on our website, so please try and avoid including any information that you do not want to be made public. Once you have read the document information regarding Egham or any other part of Surrey you can inform the council of your views using the link at the bottom of the page. Wesley Drive. Drawing No: 18 Install single yellow lines to operate Monday to Saturday 8:00am to 6:00pm on both the north and south sides of Wesley Drive from the roundabout with Manorscroft Road eastwards to join up to existing restrictions. This will prevent vehicles associated with school time drop offs and collections from parking dangerously close to the junction, compromising the safety of all road users.
River Park Avenue. Drawing No: 19
Introduce double yellow lines on both sides of River Park Avenue from the junction with The Causeway northwards to join up with the existing restrictions.
Currently vehicles park on both sides of the southern end of River Park Avenue making access problematic, especially for HGV’s making deliveries. These
restrictions will greatly improve access and road safety.
The Hythe. Drawing No: 20
Revoke the enforceable disabled bay outside No.6 & 7 as it is no longer required. The space will be absorbed into the parking bay operating under the
terms and conditions of The Hythe Controlled Zone and therefore become ‘permit holders or 2 hours no return within 4 hours’.
Pooley Green Road. Drawing No:21
There is a 3 hour no return 1 hour, signed disabled bay in the service road at the Thorpe Lea Road end (opposite the Pharmacy) that needs to be added to
the legal traffic order, so it can be enforced. Amendment for the Traffic Regulation Order only.
Wick Road. Drawing No: 07
Revoke a 12 metre long length of double yellow line - just west of the junction of the A30 London Road - and introduce a 2 hours, no return within 2 hours
Mon – Sat 8:00am to 6:00pm restriction in its place. This will legally allow vehicles to park in this disused gateway whilst they walk in Windsor Great Park.
Wetton Place (Tamarind Court). Drawing No: 13a
Install double yellow lines around the north, east and southern side of Wetton Place outside Tamarind Court, which will join up with the existing restrictions to
maintain access to and from the residents parking areas at all times. Residents are being blocked in by vehicles over spilling from adjacent private car parks.
Other places that formed part of the Surrey County Council Runnymede Parking Review for 2016, are shown below; but as they are not part of The Egham Area No Drawings Are Provided On This Website.
CHERTSEY, FOXHILLS, THORPE AND VIRGINIA WATER, ADDLESTONE, WOODHAM AND NEW HAW.
Revoke a 6.6metre length of the Monday – Saturday 8:00am to 6:00pm 2 hours, no return 2 hours parking bay at its southern end outside No.22, and in its place install a 6.6metre enforceable disabled bay without time limit, as an application has been received and accepted from the resident of this property.
Make the existing parking bay outside terraced houses No’s 1 to 35 into permit holders only applying Mon-Sun 8.00am to 6.30pm. Permit criteria to be the same as the existing permit schemes in Runnymede (currently The Hythe, Egham and Burn Close, Addlestone). At the far end of Pretoria Road, there is a large housing development planned comprising over 300 new homes. These new properties will front the private end
of Pretoria Road, where existing residents are not allowed to park. However, with the remaining section of Pretoria Road being public highway - including the parking bay outside No’s 1 to 35 - and bearing in mind that parking for the new development will be limited, it is anticipated that residents of the new development will seek to park on the public highway section of Pretoria Road. In preparation for this, it is proposed to introduce a ‘permit holders only’ restriction on the parking bay outside No’s 1 to 35 Pretoria Road, to allow residents of these properties priority over parking in this particular parking bay.
On the southern side of Stepgates introduce 20 metres of double yellow line which begins 5 metres east of the existing School Keep Clear marking and runs eastwards across the entrance of the health centre. This will improve access to and from the health centre, improve sightlines, and act as a passing place for through traffic in this crowded road.
Free Prae Road.
Introduce double yellow lines on the eastern side of Free Prae Road from the junction with Eastworth Road northwards along the side of No.77, and on the western side up to and covering the intersection with the cycle track. Introduce double yellow lines on both junctions of Free Prae Road and Fairway to maintain access and road safety at all times. These are recommendations from a road safety audit carried out by the Road Safety Team Manager and Surrey Police. Introduce double yellow lines across the southern entrance to the car park of St Anne’s Catholic Primary School. The School Keep Clear marking was shortened to make it enforceable and these double yellow lines will maintain road safety and access to the car park.
On the north side introduce double yellow lines from a point in line with the rear boundary of No:193 Chertsey Road eastwards up to the existing restrictions. On the southern side introduce double yellow lines from a point 10metres into the eastern side of Canford Drive eastwards up to the existing restrictions. This will improve road safety and sightlines on the junction and along Roakes Avenue.
Little Green Lane junction with Lyndhurst Way.
Introduce double yellow lines on this junction to improve road safety and sight lines. At the moment there are advisory white lines in place, but these are frequently ignored and need to be upgraded and enforceable.
Sandalwood Avenue. Drawing No: 88
Introduce double yellow lines on the east side of Sandalwood Avenue from where the existing restrictions end alongside No.10 southwards into the junction outside Nos.82 and 37 and continuing past the junction alongside No. 37. This will limit any vehicles parking to one side of Sandlewood Avenue only and will improve access and traffic flow for through vehicles.
FOXHILLS, THORPE AND VIRGINIA WATER
The Orchard junction with Whitehill Place, Virginia Water.
Introduce double yellow lines on the junction to improve road safety and sightlines, and to stop vehicles parking on and obstructing the footway.
Oak Tree Close j/w Trumps Green Road, Virginia Water. Drawing No: 96 Introduce double yellow lines on the junction of Oak Tree Close and Trumps
Green Road, extending into Oak Tree Close on both sides and terminating at the junction of Oak Tree Close by numbers 1 and 14, which will be double yellow lined on all arms of the junction. This is to address a longstanding issue of obstructive parking, including footway obstructions, by some residents and also by visitors to the tennis courts and playing fields located nearby on Trumps Green Road.
Brox Road, Ottershaw.
Upgrade the existing single yellow line to a double yellow line between the two parking bays outside Brox Mews. Currently - outside of the single yellow line operational hours - vehicles are parking here whilst visiting local shops and restaurants, which blocks access to the Brox Mews development.
Crabtree Road, Thorpe.
Install double yellow lines on all four sides of the publicly maintained roundabout with the private roads of Alpha Way, Beta Way and Omega Way on the Crabtree Industrial Estate. This will improve and maintain access and turning for the large number of HGV’s that deliver to the industrial estate at all hours of the day and night. The restriction will also prevent vehicles parking on and completely obstructing the footway forcing pedestrians to walk in the road where these large commercial vehicles are manoeuvring, which is dangerous.
Tennyson Road junction with Byron Road.
Install double yellow lines on the junction to maintain road safety, access and improve sightlines.
Hamm Moor Lane.
On the western side of Hamm Moor Lane, extend the double yellow lines southwards from the roundabout to a point in line with the southern building line of 1 Page House. This will prevent trucks and vans parking too close to the roundabout, which can hinder the positioning of vehicles as they approach the junction.
Revoke the enforceable disabled bay as it is no longer required.
Simplemarsh Road junction with Bellmarsh Road (private)
Introduce double yellow lines on this junction to improve road safety and sightlines. The double yellow lines can only extend 1.5 metres into Bellmarsh Road as this is the limit of the public highway.
Fieldhurst Close junction with Liberty Lane.
Introduce double yellow lines on the junction to maintain road safety and sight lines.
WOODHAM AND NEW HAW
Queen Mary’s Drive junction with Kingston Rise.
Introduce double yellow lines on the eastern side of Kingston Rise (outside No:44) and on the southern side of Queen Mary’s Drive to maintain safety and improve access and sightlines.
King George’s Drive junction with Kingston Rise.
Install double yellow lines on the junction of King George’s Drive and KingstonRise (outside No’s 1 & 2) to maintain safety and improve access and sightlines.
King George’s Drive junction with The Avenue
Install double yellow lines on the eastern side of the junction of King George’s Drive and The Avenue to maintain safety and improve access and sightlines.
Woodham Lane junction with Mayfield Avenue.
Introduce double yellow lines on the junction to maintain safety and improve sight lines.
Install double yellow lines in the gap between the two existing School Keep Clear markings, to prevent vehicles parking here and causing congestion.
Scotland Bridge Road j/w Florence Avenue, Lindsay Road (private),
Selsdon Road, Braeside and outside the Cherry Brook Nursery.
Introduce double yellow lines on the junction of Scotland Bridge Road and Florence Avenue to maintain road safety and improve sight lines. Introduce double yellow lines on the eastern side of Scotland Bridge Road opposite Florence Avenue to maintain road safety and access. Introduce double yellow lines on the junction of Scotland Bridge Road and Selsdon Road to maintain road safety and improve sight lines. Introduce double yellow lines on the junction of Scotland Bridge Road and Lindsay Road (private) to maintain road safety and improve sight lines. Introduce double yellow lines on the junction of Scotland Bridge Road and Braeside to maintain road safety and improve sight lines. Introduce double yellow lines outside of the entrance to the Cherry Brook Nursery to maintain road safety and improve sight lines.
Queen Mary’s Drive j/w Wendley Drive
Introduce double yellow lines on both the Wendley Drive junctions to maintain road safety and improve sight lines.
