Could this be good news for residents of Beresford Rd and Barnwood Close?

Every year Reading Borough Council review the on-road waiting restrictions.

This year the existing single yellow lines 'No Waiting Mon-Sat 8am - 6.30 pm' on Beresford Road  and on the corner of Barnwood Close are being review with a view of them becoming double yellow lines otherwise known as 'No Waiting At Anytime'.

I have logged numerous complaints from residents about vans parking on these single yellow lines.  Beresford Road is a difficult, narrow road anyway.  With vans blocking sight lines and parking on the pavement, it just makes things worse for road users and pedestrians.  I believe changing the restrictions will be a good thing and said so at the Traffic Management Advisory Panel the list was passed at.

There are also proposed changes to restrictions in Loverock Road.

The consultation notices have been put up and comments in support of the change are just as welcome as those against.  I welcome your comments too: sarah.hacker@reading.gov.uk
