Safety concerns prompt new ‘no stopping’ restrictions

New ‘no stopping’ restrictions, along the A412 Uxbridge Road near Black Park, come into force next month (September). Signs will be installed from mid-August.

Cars parkedon the verges of the busy dual-carriageway, near Black Park, Wexham, have raised safety concerns with local residents and transport officers at Buckinghamshire County Council.

The new enforceable restrictions follow the expansion of Black Park’s car park by 140 spaces.

Mark Shaw, Cabinet Member for Transport, said: ‘Keeping all road users safe is my main goal, and getting people to park in the right places will go a long way to help with this.Black Park is a great place to go, with plenty of great value parking available.’

Warren Whyte, Cabinet Member for Planning and Environment,added: ‘These changes are being made to encourage people to come and make the most of this great outdoor facility. The extra spaces in the car park will make a great difference.’

New wooden posts, to deter parking, will be installed on the verges, along with signs detailing the parking restrictions. During installation a lane will be closed.
