Alastair Majury on Proposed Allanvale Road Restrictions
On Sunday 26th May I had the following issue highlighted to me:
There is a private communal residential parking area, with the entrance adjacent to 53 Allanvale Road. Since parking restrictions have been introduced in other areas of Bridge of Allan, members of the public have been parking on the street (Allanvale Road) very close to either side of the parking area entrance. This markes exiting the parking area very hazardous due to blind corner, bus stop and junction opposite. Perhaps a short section of double yellow lines either side of the entrance would prevent the on street parking and make the area safer.
I raised the matter to officers, and today (4th June) I have received the following update from officers:
Dear Councillor Majury,
Thank you for your enquiry relating to parking in the vicinity of 53 Allanvale Road, Bridge of Allan.
The Network Management Team have confirmed that other concerns have been raised about unsafe parking in this area and are now looking to promote a double yellow line (DYL) restriction. The proposed restriction will prevent parking over a 30m stretch of the street, which includes the private access to which you refer in your enquiry.
Officers have also issued a more general update:
I have attached a location plan and a google map view of the location where we propose to introduce no waiting restrictions to prevent parking of vehicle close to the bend as shown. The reason for this is due to complaints received from residents, serviced by the access shown in the image, of parked vehicles creating a dangerous situation for them exiting the shared access. In addition a further hazard is the junction close by where Allanvale Road meets Union Street, on a bend in the road which can clearly be seen on the attached image.
