Coventry council admits to yellow lines oversight in city centre

Patrick McDonnell

Coventry City Council has admitted it did not follow correct procedures when enforcing parking in the city centre. The council introduced a parking zone in the city centre six years ago, which banned parking on all streets except in designated bays. However, it failed to remove all yellow lines in the zone as was required. 

A road safety campaigner, Richard Heneghan, took photographic evidence of at least five streets that still had double yellow lines on them, although the council had said that these lines were painted over. Also, the campaigner said that the signage was inadequate and confusing.

A spokeswoman for Coventry City Council, said: “When it was brought to our attention that not all yellow lines have been covered in the city centre, we inspected the whole zone. Over the last week we have had a team out to rectify any issues. This work will be completed as soon as possible.”
