Final plea for double yellow lines
RESIDENTS in Portishead have made a final plea for double yellow lines to be installed in Harbour Road ahead of the processing of a traffic regulation order.
People living in the town have been calling for parking restrictions to be introduced on both sides of the road near to the entrance to Waitrose car park, ever since the North Somerset Council adopted the road in February.
Those using nearby cafes, bars and restaurants often leave their cars on the busy road which links older parts of the town to the new developments.
The parking not only makes it difficult for two vehicles to pass, but also makes turning right out of the car park extremely difficult.
There are concerns the situation will get worse with the imminent opening of a Travel Lodge, which is currently under construction and a proposed Lidl store adjacent to the Waitrose car park.

A consultation on the yellow lines is nearing an end and residents say they hope their pleas will be heeded.
Portishead Town Councillors were accused by residents of not listening to the people of the town after deciding not to support the application earlier this year. North Somerset Council is expected to make a decision later this month.
