Councillors have today (52 minutes ago) been emailed the following notice regarding new temporary parking restrictions, following on from the congestion to do with the bridge closure between Drewstead Road and Sternhold Avenue behind Streatham Hill station. The restrictions came into force yesterday.
TEMPORARY PARKING, WAITING AND LOADING RESTRICTIONS IN BLAKEMORE ROAD, BRANCASTER ROAD, DE MONTFORT ROAD AND MOUNT EPHRAIM ROAD
1. The Council of the London Borough of Lambeth hereby gives notice that from Wednesday 24th September 2014 for a period of up to 21 days vehicles will be banned from parking and waiting (including waiting for loading or unloading purposes) at any time in:-
(i) Mount Ephraim Road:
(a) the north side, between the eastern boundary of No. 6 Mount Ephraim Road and De Montfort Road;
(b) the south side, (i) between a point 7 metres east of Blakemore Road and a point 6.5 metres west of Blakemore Road; and (ii) between a point 7.5 metres east of
Brancaster Road and a point 11 metres west of Brancaster Road;
(ii) Blakemore Road, (a) the east side between Mount Ephraim Road and a point 16 metres south of Mount Ephraim Road; and (b) the west side, between Mount Ephraim Road and a point 16.8 metres south of Mount Ephraim Road;
(iii) Brancaster Road, (a) the east side, between Mount Ephraim Road and the southern boundary wall of No. 29 Mount Ephraim Road; and (b) the west side, between Mount Ephraim Lane and the party wall of Nos. 2 and 4 Brancaster Road;
(iv) De Montfort Road, the east side, between Mount Ephraim Road and the common
boundary of No. 24 Mount Ephraim Road and No. 25 De Montfort Road.
2. It is necessary for the above parking/waiting restrictions to come into force without delay to enable the safe flow of traffic on diversion because of the temporary closure of the bridge over Streatham Hill train station (the un-named road linking Drewstead Road and Sternhold Avenue) while structural works to that bridge are being carried out and will only apply at such times and to such extent as shall be indicated by the placing of the appropriate traffic signs.
3. While this notice has effect, the provisions of the Lambeth (Waiting and Loading Restriction) Order 1997 shall have effect as though (a) the length of road specified in paragraph 1 above is a restricted street specified in Schedules 1 and 2 to that Order; and (b) the prescribed hours and restricted hours relating to that length of road are at any time.
4. The bans will continue by virtue of this notice for 21 days or until the works have been completed, whichever is the sooner. If this is not possible within the period of 21 days, the Council may issue another notice or they may make a temporary order under section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, so as to continue the closure for a further period of time.
