West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper has secured commitment from Lancashire County Council to tackle dangerous and obstruction parking at the junction of Altys Lane and Brook Lane in Ormskirk.
Officers have recently undertaken an investigation, following reports from MP Rosie and local residents, of cars parking too close to the junction which could cause an obstruction to road users and pedestrians attempting to cross the road at this point.
Following the investigations, it is now intended for double yellow lines to be introduced which would enable Lancashire Parking Services to issue penalty charge notices to vehicles parked in contravention.
West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said:
“It’s been a long time coming for the residents living at this junction where careless drivers park near the corner heighten the risk for drivers and pedestrians limiting visibility and space to manoeuvre.
“Residents will now be pleased that Lancashire County Council will consult with them on the potential introduction of yellow lines to discourage this activity continuing.
“If the local residents are in support of yellow lines then they could see them come into force this year and offenders issued with fines.”
