Following the installation of a zebra crossing on Coldharbour Road (as part of the Southmead Quietway project), the number of residents’ parking spaces has been reduced by circa 20 spaces. Based on the last Census, parking for 32 households has been reduced by 60% which is causing residents to double park on this very busy and main thoroughfare. We are also seeing non residents park here and either commuting to work or visiting the shops / chemist on Kellaway Avenue.
Double parking not only obstructs cyclists, commuters, buses and
emergency services vehicles, it has significantly increased
pollution and congestion. There have been numerous cases of road
rage and minor accidents as a result of the congestion being caused
by double parking, which also makes the whole route very dangerous
for cyclists. The volume, speed of traffic and residents’
parking is clearly an issue on this stretch of road but more
importantly is the safety of residents and commuters
