Residents in Quarry Road, Alveston are expressing their concerns and anger over the growing number of large drive ways being constructed along the road.
Another drive way being constructed in Quarry Road
In recent months more than three drive ways have been constructed along the short stretch of residential road along with the lowering of cub stones. Residents along Quarry Road are annoyed that the council has allowed residents to have large drive ways constructed which have dramatically reduced the number of available parking spaces along the road.
Furthermore is the concern over the number of un-used disabled bays that further restrict resident parking.
The Marlwood end of Quarry Road has always been a busy stretch of road at school times as parents / carers drop off and collect their children from school.
Mrs White who picks her granddaughter up from the school each evening said "I have been collecting my granddaughter from school for nearly four years, but in recent months I have been finding it increasingly more difficult to park" The road has become blighted with dropped curbs and disabled bays.
A resident from Quarry Road said "I do not drive so for me it is not a parking however my family do struggle to park when they visit, the drive ways seem to be getting bigger and bigger as well as more and more" Without any doubt the council needs to start controlling the number of drive ways being constructed in the road".
