HGV’s parked outside fuelling station

Reported via desktop in the Road markings (NH) category anonymously at 09:23, Sun 22 January 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4157975.

HGV’s parked outside shell fuelling station constantly. This forces the vehicles leaving the roundabout to use the lane that carry’s traffic in the opposite direction and overtake parked traffic whilst attempting to accelerate to join the bypass. The problem comes when traffic is turning out of the shell fuelling station towards the roundabout it is then a blind turn obscured by HGV into traffic traveling at 70mph.

  • Thank you for your report concerning HGVs parked on the road at Picket Post Shell Garage.

    Unfortunately, as we're not an enforcement agency we can't remove any vehicles parked illegally. This would be a matter for the police.

    Furthermore, there don't appear to be any road markings indicating that parking is prohibited in this area, so it may be the case that no action can be taken. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.
