Highways chief agrees to improve Blackpool warning signs

A highways chief has agreed to improve warning signs in Blackpool amid worries that drivers are being punished by parking restrictions.

Ex-chief constable of the town Alan Rydeheard has told the Blackpool Gazette that he is constantly alerting drivers who try to park outside his Kenwyn Avenue property.

Mr Rydeheard explained that many are unaware of the residents-only parking scheme because there are no notices fitted along the road.

"The signs informing people this is a residents-only parking area are only at the end of the road, but when people are turning in, they can easily miss them. In addition, one of the signs is almost completely hidden by an overgrown tree," he told the news provider.

Councillor Fred Jackson has now ensured that extra road markings will be put on the road.

Recently, property owners in Oswaldtwistle called for warning signs to be installed at a low railway bridge following a collision.

The Lancashire Telegraph reported that a truck was passing under the 14ft 9inch bridge in Blackburn Road when the incident happened, though there were no injuries.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801449215-ADNFCR
