Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 18:53, Wednesday 21 October 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2351691.

It is like a race track and a obstacle course.. All cars are parked on each side of the road you can’t see the other end of the road due to parked cars there will be a accident soon .. can the grass at the sides not be made into suitable parking spaces? Not sure if this is the right place to report it I have been in contact with the parish council!!

  • Thank you for your enquiry. The public highway is for the passage of vehicles. Whilst vehicles are permitted to park, the carriageway is not intended as a car park. The creation of parking bays to allow road users to park is not a current priority for Northamptonshire County Council, therefore the only option is for the authority to consider some form of parking restrictions to allow the safe passage of passing vehicles. This will obviously have knock on problems for other areas as residents and their visitors look for other places to park. If you feel parking restrictions are required please can you contact Duston Parish Council for this to be discussed at one of the up coming Parish Council meetings and if it has their support they can submit a request for restriction.
