Parking of lorries which restrict visibility splay
Reported via mobile in the Car parking category anonymously at 13:37, Monday 12 February 2024
Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 5566191.
Lorries continuously park alongside this road. It is dangerous to exit Milnyard Square in a vehicle due to the lorries parked up blocking line of sight. There is a considerable volume of traffic on this road at 5pm each day and you can not see if vehicles are on coming due to the asking of numbers lorries. As can be seen here in the attached photos, there are 5+ lorries parked up.this is every week day, all day. Please can something be done to prevent lorries parking, it is extremely dangerous.
Thanks for reporting this issue.
