Euston Rd & Haverstock Rd, Sandringham - No stopping restrictions

Consultation status: closed 21 June 2017

We are proposing to install No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) on Euston Road and Haverstock Road in Sandringham.

Why the changes are needed

Site investigations showed that parked vehicles at the top of this T-intersection force drivers to cross the centre line. A similar safety issue occurs on Euston Road as both Euston Road and Haverstock Road are narrow roads.

The proposed No stopping at all times restrictions will help improve vehicle accessibility whilst maintaining some parking spaces on Euston Road.

Feedback

Thank you everyone for your feedback.

The proposal received positive feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning.

Specific feedback and proposed solution

  • Request to extend the Broken Yellow Lines further. The design seeks to strike a balance between parking provisions and safety along Euston Rd and at the intersection. Subsequent addition of broken yellow lines would result in a loss of parking and negligible safety benefits.
  • Concerns about the removal of parking on Euston Road. We understand that there is a high demand for parking along Euston Rd, however the broken yellow lines are required to increase safety along the road. The proposal seeks to limit the parking loss whilst increasing safety.
  • Current broken yellow lines don’t go as far as shown on the drawing. The project will not affect parking outside 74 Haverstock Road.
  • Request for additional works including road widening, parking bays and to replace the give way sign on Euston Road with a stop sign. If you would like your request to be considered for future development works, provide feedback here.

Next steps

We expect to introduce this work starting in July 2017 and throughout 2017/2018, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues. Contractors will notify all residents in the area prior to starting construction work.
