Paddington Drive to get new parking restrictions

Proposals by the Council are underway to introduce parking restrictions on Paddington Drive between Sainsbury’s and The Meads’ Roundabout.

This work has been prioritised in response to the congestion issues experienced by drivers in the Churchward area, which has been intensified by heavy goods vehicles parking on the approach to the roundabout.

These heavy goods vehicles contribute to the congestion in this area, which in recent months has been seen backed up onto Penzance Drive.

Recently there has been multiple reports from motorists of cars parking ahead of the heavy goods vehicles on Paddington Drive, which obscures the view for motorists more and further increases the congestion along this road.

It is anticipated the restrictions will be in place in the run up to Christmas.
