It’s a whole three months since Bexley council last
with the yellow paint pot. 30 odd roads were deemed to be revenue
generators. A few people got upset at how
their businesses would suffer but Bexley council is on a mission to raise
money so whether the concerns are justified or not, they count for nothing.
Today the next batch of roads has been announced for the double yellow treatment. They are…
Beechway, Blendon Road, Dorchester Avenue, Huntington Close and Ravenswood.
Little Heath Road, Marlborough Road and Northall Road.
Dulverton Road and Telford Road.
Brendon Close, Dickens Close, Erith Road, Lesney Park Road, Pembroke Road, Plantation Road and Slade Green Road.
Blackfen Road, Clarence Crescent, Haddon Grove, Harland Avenue, Harman Drive and St. James Way.
Not content with 26 new sets of double yellow lines, four of those roads are to get single yellow line restrictions too.
Some roads will no doubt benefit from parking controls but the general direction of flow is always the same. An ever greater area must be made available to revenue collection by a council which has no money.
