Yellow lines removed from Queen Street

cars-parked-along-Queen-St-Oct-2014To add to the recent slew of traffic management initiatives in Amble, most of the single yellow lines will be removed from Queen Street next week. In addition, the parking bays will be removed and all parking along the street will be restricted to one hour.

A single yellow line will remain outside the Waterloo pub, and the loading bays outside the Dock and Herons will be retained.

Road closures

Work will take place to remove the lines on the evening of Wednesday 22nd, at the top of Queen Street to Cross Street  from 5pm to 8pm. Work on the bottom end of Queen Street (Cross St to Bridge St) will take place on Thursday 23rd, also from 5 to 8pm. Residents will be notified by Northumberland County Council and asked to move their vehicles during this time.

Amble Mayor Craig Weir said “I am pleased after many meetings between NCC, Amble Town Council, Amble Business Club and Amble Development Trust we have reached the stage of implementing improvements in parking on the street for both shoppers and residents.”

The Ambler understands that like the summertime Park & Ride and Braid parking, and the forthcoming one way system on Leazes St, this initiative on Queen Street is also a trial scheme. and although there is no requirement to use an NCC parking disc, it may be introduced at some point in the future.
