Beulah Ave, Rothesay Bay – Broken yellow lines

Consultation status: closed 5 October 2017

Proposal reference: BYL-165

We are going to install broken yellow lines (no stopping restrictions) along the Beulah Avenue cul-de-sac in Rothesay Bay, this will result in the loss of some on-street parking.

We are responding to concerns that cars parked along this narrow stretch of road are causing access issues for emergency vehicles and larger trucks.

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

  • A request to create more carparks by installing angle parking at the beginning of the Beulah Ave cul-de-sac extension. The Beulah Ave extension is not wide enough to accommodate angle car parks which require extra space for drivers to access.
  • A request for parking restrictions (broken yellow lines) to be installed on the southern side of Beulah Ave from number 64 to the head of the cul-de-sac, rather than the northern side of street. This suggestion aims to preserve additional on-street car parks. This request cannot be incorporated in our plans because it does not leave adequate space for emergency vehicles to access the cul-de-sac. Our proposal restricts parking on the northern side of the street in order to allow large vehicles enough space to safely move past cars parked on the southern side of the street in the parking bays at 60-62 Beulah Ave.
  • Request for broken yellow lines to be extended along the length of the cul-de-sac to prevent crashes and ensure the safety of pedestrians. Our proposal aims to minimise the loss of on-street parking whilst addressing driver safety and access concerns. The volume of traffic on the Beulah Ave cul-de-sac is low, we will not be extending parking restrictions any further.

Next steps

We expect to introduce this work in the 2017/18 financial year, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues.
Contractors will issue 48-hour notice to all affected residents prior to construction work.
