Improving Safety In Darwin Road

No Waiting at Any Time restrictions have now been put in place with the painting of yellow lines at the junctions in Darwin Road.

The Thornbury Road / Darwin Road junction in particular has been a danger spot with the lack of vision afforded to drivers due to the parked cars at this junction.

I along with Councillors Michael Ball and Brian Parnell have supported Southampton City Councils’ implementation of parking restrictions.

We hope that this should limit the number of road traffic accidents in this area and improve pedestrian safety.

We have also asked that the parking enforcement officers be vigilant with extra enforcement activity in the early weeks of the introduction of this scheme to help reinforce this measure with drivers.
