Today Edgbaston Cllrs Fergus Robinson, Matt Bennett and I checked out the new double yellow lining at Templefield Square.
These lines were requested by local residents to help improve safety for those exiting the shoppers’ car park at Templefield Square. It’s clear in the Highway Code that motorists should not park right up to junctions, but people continually do. That means those people coming out of the junction (in this case the car park exit) cannot see what traffic is approaching on the main road because the parked cars block their view, and effectively they have to exit “blind” which is very dangerous.
The new double yellow lines at Templefield Square should therefore help improve road safety by ensuring those people exiting the shoppers’ car park can now see traffic approaching down Wheeleys Road.
