Parking cars and commercial vehicles along speed chicanes, blocking the view of junctions Tilley Crescent.

Reported via mobile in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 10:29, Wednesday 3 April 2024

Sent to Northumberland County Council 1 minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5799798.

Cars and commercial vehicles are constantly blocking the view of the junction for Tilley Crescent, making it extremely dangerous particularly when turning left out of Tilley Crescent. Also because the vehicles are parking along a speed chicane which means the cars have to drive on the opposite side of the road it is making it a long stretch of road before cars are able to pull back in therefore drive towards heading traffic for a dangerous length of time. Because of the height and length of the commercial vehicles it is impossible to see round them to see if there is oncoming traffic. They are also parked blocking the view of the pedestrian crossing. The traffic builds up here especially morning and around 3-6pm for Tilley Crescent, Odinel Court and the pedestrian crossing. This is an ongoing issue. These vehicles are often parked there all day on weekends and holidays. With 1 or 2 very rarely moving. There is often 4 vehicles plus the chicane to drive past. This means that this stretch of road is extremely dangerous on a regular basis.
