Directly opposite 80 Katherine Drive.

Reported via mobile in the Pavement and Cycle path category anonymously at 10:19, Friday 3 May 2024

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 406266.

I have previously reported an issue with vehicles parking on the pavement on Katherine Drive LU5 4NU just before Lockington Cres that is extremely dangerous and blocks the view of vehicles pulling out of Lockington Crescent onto Katherine and more importantly for the many children that cross Katherine drive at this location to get to local schools. When at the junction of Lockington Crescent waiting to pull onto Katherine Drive in my vehicle, I recently took the photos I’ve attached to this message. You simply cannot see vehicles coming towards you that are coming down Katherine Drive so it’s extremely difficult and dangerous trying to pull out of the Lockington Cresecent. Can anything be done about this please? I believe that it’s only a matter of time before we have a major accident at this junction or a school child is hit by a car coming down Katherine drive as they can’t see when crossing at this location. Please can someone look into this as a matter of urgency. Could bollards be erected on the area where the van is parked so that you can’t park there or get up on the pavement. The van is not the only vehicle that parks there on a daily basis, but this was the only vehicle there at the time I captured the picture. There are usually 2 vans and at least one car parked up on the pavement at this junction. Can a parking enforcement officer be deployed over a 2-3 day period to issue tickets to these vehicles in an attempt to prevent them parking there on a daily basis? I do believe that cars are not legally allowed to park there. This issue has been a concern of mine for a good 5 years and I have previously reported it but I’ve never had anyone contact me with any feedback or a plan of action.
