Parking improvements in Broughton

Friday, June 14, 2019

New parking bays will be created near Broughton Crossroads, as part of the ongoing improvement work in the village.

A parking bays and a restricted parking area on the south side of the crossroads were officially agreed at the Cabinet meeting yesterday (Thursday 13 June). The current waiting restrictions will be replaced by these new arrangements.

County Councillor Keith Iddon, Cabinet member for highways and transport, explained: "We're adding parking bays and creating a restricted parking area. It would have been a shame to add double yellow lines, when we can use another more suitable option that will help how the road looks following our work.

"The new bays will help people who are visiting homes and businesses on the south side of the crossroads, as part of our ongoing improvement work."

The Restricted Parking Zone allows for waiting restrictions to be indicated solely by traffic signs, without the need for double yellow lines to be marked on the road.

This improvement work is part of the planning permission for James Towers Way, which opened in October 2017.

James Towers Way and the improvement work in Broughton are part of the Preston, South Ribble and Lancashire City Deal. This is an agreement between the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership, Preston City Council, South Ribble Borough Council and Lancashire County Council, along with central government and Homes England.
