There needs to be a Stop or GiveWay sign at the exit of the Corporation Yard car park please

Reported via desktop in the Damaged / Missing / Facing Wrong Way (Signs) category anonymously at 18:08, Wed 13 September 2023

Sent to Northumberland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4991393.

There is currently no signage and the only marking on the road at the exit of the Corporation Yard Car Park says No Entry. I live in Chantry Mews and have a near miss on a regular basis with cars coming out of the car park, they often don't stop and drivers sometimes don't look left or right but assume they have right of way. What with cars parking on the yellow lines, delivery vans coming to the back of M&S, Lidl etc, and pedestrians just wandering across the roads it is a very busy and congested area of road going around Corporation Yard and New Phoenix yard. Thank you.

  • There is still no sign in place. There is already a post at the car park exit - on the right hand side - on which there is a reminder sign about displaying a parking disc. I would have thought a give way or stop sign could just be put on the top of that post? I suppose ideally a sign should go at the left hand side of the exit but a sign on the right would be a good starting point.

  • Still no sign in place yet, but I have had another near miss this week with someone coming out of the car park without stopping to check for traffice coming from their right or left.

  • I don't understand why something so simple to fix is taking so long. It was a waste of time and effort reporting it. I expect an accident will have to happen before anyone takes it seriously.
