Mercedes van parked causing a blind-spot, 8th November

Wed, 08 Nov 2023 16:59:14 +0000
54.554499 -1.552904

I'd like to draw attention to a recurring issue involving a Mercedes van that is regularly parked at the intersection of Camborne Drive and the beginning of Helston Close. The consistent presence of this van is causing a potential safety hazard as it obstructs the view, leading to near accidents. A significant number of residents in our area share these concerns, as this parked van creates a blind spot for drivers trying to navigate in and out of Helston Close. As a resident of Helston Close, the constant presence of the Mercedes van at the Camborne Drive junction leaves me consistently apprehensive about the potential risks. We kindly request that the parking of this van in this specific location be reconsidered. Our collective safety is at risk, and we hope that taking action now can help avert any potential accidents that may result from this ongoing issue.

I thought gone were the days of horses, horse manure and walking in Mud. Clearly not. It's disgusting in Thompson Street West. Please get someone out to clean up the whole road of sludgy mud from leaves you left behind. You didnt pick up the leaves now residents drains get blocked, how thoughtful, spend it elsewhere I bet.

Parking on main road obscuring driver view from junction, 23rd March

Thu, 23 Mar 2023 20:49:46 +0000
54.553828 -1.549037

243 Highway code: two vehicles constantly park illegally at junction obstructing drivers ability to view traffic on the main road. This illegal parking is also dangerous because vehicles on the major road cannot see cars on the junction exiting Princess Road. In addition there is an exit to two busy businesses, The White Horse public house and Croxdale Tyre Centre on Burtree Lane. This issue has been occurring for at least the last twenty years and no action has been taken. I have raised this issue previously but after another near miss accident today I will be raising this issue again until some suitable action is taken.

Van parks on bend and blocks view of road, 1st October

54.544263 -1.52559

The truck constantly parks on the bend blocking/obstructing the view of oncoming traffic ,causing cars to drive round it on the opposite side of road. This led to me swerving to avoid the car in the picture hitting me and therefore i hit the kerb damaging my alloy wheel.There is no view of the road if pedestrians are crossing too.

Road works and traffic lights causing vehicles to drive on pavement at speed., 9th September

Fri, 09 Sep 2022 16:53:39 +0100
54.55513 -1.550638

The new water main work has closed off just over half the road way, adding 3 way traffic lights to this has meant several vehicles are mounting the (White Horse) footpath and driving at speed along it. At best there is going to be an accident with vehicles coming out of drives at worst a pedestrian will be killed at they step off the drive. The road needs to be closed for this type of work.
