Although most people seem to support the recent upgrade at the Shore, one thing that doesn’t seem to to be working is the North bound traffic ban.
A few days ago we spotted this taxi flouting the rules, but we’ve also heard local residents complain too.
Indeed, one local resident posted this report onto fixmystreet.com this week:
“I cannot believe after spending over £500, 000 in new road restrictions , that there is no one overseeing the illegal parking and miss use and ignoring the signs on the shore.
“Firstly on Saturdays and Sundays and after 6pm the cars parked along the shore on the double yellow lines is unbelievable, also cars entering from Henderson street and sand port place along the shore passing the Huge no entry sign is just unacceptable.
“When will this ever be manned as after spending huge amounts on the re- generation in the area at tax payers expense this should be looked at?”
A council officer, who would probably prefer to remained nameless has assured us that moves to install a safety camera to catch illegal drivers are now afoot.
Of course, that won’t stop the illegal parking though, but it’ll soon put a stop to people ignoring the traffic restrictions.
