Vehicles parking within 10 meters of junction, breach of highway code.

Reported via desktop in the Road Markings - Worn/Faded category anonymously at 17:58, Thursday 16 September 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3006342.

I reported this before but knew you would "investigate" through the day when the road is clear. So reporting again with photos taken at 7 am. As you can see from the photos, zero visibility down Harrington road when pulling out of Moorfield road, cars speed down this road and you cannot see oncoming vehicles even when halfway across the road (see photos). Very dangerous junction and you have to take pot luck whether there are any oncoming vehicles. The yellow lines present don't comply with the highway code (breach of rule 243) and allows vehicles to park within 10 metres of this junction.

  • Thank you for your report regarding Moorfield Road/Harrington Road, Rothwell. For information, your original report was directed to a separate team and as such we were unaware of your report until this morning. Please be advised that consideration could be made to extend the yellow lining along Harrington Road, however we would require a Parking Restriction Request form to be completed. Please visit the Councils website using the following link parking-roads-and-transport/ request-new-parking-restrictions for more information on the process and to submit an application. Please note that by submitting a request form, the proposals are not automatically agreed and are still subject to a site assessment being undertaken by ourselves. As you may be aware, parking restrictions have a Traffic Regulation Order behind them in order to make the restrictions legal and enforceable. The Council is therefore required to follow a legal process, which includes consultation and potentially a period of dealing with any objections, before parking restrictions can be implemented. This process can take up to 12 – 18 months to complete, with assessments from Parking Restriction Request currently being received forming part of next year’s review – which is due to commence Summer/Autumn 2022. Once requests have been assessed, we intend to advertise those that we deem appropriate in Winter/Spring time 22/23. Please note that the estimated 12-18 months commences from the beginning of the review process and not from receipt of application. I hope the above is of use, please do not hesitate to contact us further.

    State changed to: No further action
