It’s dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists around the junction of Market Lane and Napier Road (which is quite busy because it is one of the few ways in by car to a huge area of housing). The main cause is people parking close to the junction on both roads. This in turn causes drivers turning out of Napier Road in a rushed fashion, because they have a major blind spot, i.e. they cannot see what’s travelling west along Market Lane, and thus they aren’t on the lookout for crossing pedestrians. There is a taxi office very close by, so taxis are frequently arriving and departing whatever parking positions they can find although usually there is sufficient space very close by or on Napier Road itself. Solutions- Double yellow lines are needed close to the junction. A middle refuge island is needed at the bottom (north end) of Napier Road, to help pedestrians going east-west. Appropriately placed outcrops and bollards are needed to discourage selfish parking.
