Curry Rivel to get parking restrictions
If you’ve ever been through the centre of Curry Rivel, you’ll not need me to tell you the High Street is a nightmare. Cars parked on either side of the road and sometimes both through the centre of the village bring traffic to a halt. Of course there are two ways of looking at this. As frustrating as it is for motorists, it also slows traffic down and provides an undersigned speed control.
Now Somerset County Council are set to act. In an order dated 5th September parking restrictions are to be introduced. There will be no waiting at any time will run from the Garage to Hillside Close, but that is relaxed to 1 hour waiting and no return within the hour are to be imposed on the short stretch of the High Street outside the OneStop shop.
The order cannot come into effect until 26th September as Somerset County Council has to give the public 21 days to object. If you wish to object then contact Area Traffic Engineer, South Somerset Area Highways Office, Mead Avenue, Houndstone Business Park, Yeovil, BA22 8RT or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Order made under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 and Traffic Management Act 2004 is stated to be for the purpose of avoiding “danger to persons or other traffic using the road or any other road or for preventing the likelihood of any such danger arising, or to preserve or improve amenities of the area through which the roads run.”
