Commercial Vehicles parking on cross hatching

Reported via desktop in the Markings category anonymously at 14:06, Wednesday 15 May 2024

Sent to Merton Council less than a minute later. Council ref: SRQ-1097681-Z4T9C3.

Ongoing problems with vehicles parking on either side of entry to Rosebery Close obscuring view of heavy traffic passing on Garth Road at a pace. This either needs traffic enforcement and/or action taken similar to Wydell Close ie double yellow lines over cross hatching. This has become dangerous and I have had two near misses. Could you please investigate? Thank you

  • Thank you for reporting this. One of our highways officers will inspect the defect. If it meets our repair criteria, we'll get our contractor to repair it.

    State changed to: In progress

  • Please let me know outcome of Traffic Enforcers inspection. It is not a repair, it is a request to put double yellow lines (as you have done in Wydell) over the hatching to deter parking on a particularly dangerous junction. Either that, or maybe you could issue a few warning tickets? The home beat informs me that it is not his job but yours

  • Hello, no action whatsoever in terms of traffic enforcement. What you have done via Conway is put a "temporary parking suspension notice" covering the cross hatched area to enable street lighting; implying that after a short period of 2 days it is okay to park there. Does anyone from traffic enforcement Merton actually intend to do anything? Meantime could you inform tree section that there is the remains of a sapling on kerbside Garth Road/Rosebery that has been snapped off presumably by a commercial vehicle. Could it be replaced? Thank you

  • No action or feedback whatsoever - problem continues. Does Merton's traffic enforcement team exist in this area?
