Nuisance parking at the end of Burpham Road
Cars parked causing a hazard
Nuisance parking at the end of Burpham Road at the juntion of the A27 is causing a hazard to passing traffic and could result in an accident soon. Cars are parking due to the economic situation, many people have decided to stop parking at Arundel railway station and parking at the end of Burpham road to save money. This has started to cause a nuisance and is proving dangerous for cars trying to exit the junction. I have been working closely with West Sussex County Council and landowners at finding solutions to stop the parking and move cars back to the Station car park. WSCC Highways have put forward a TRO (Traffic Regulation order) to paint double yellow lines for a few hundred metres from the junction back towards Warningcamp. One possible alternative being looked at is the placing of logs on the verge to dissuade cars and allow the free passage of traffic, I will keep you updated as and when I hear more.
