Double yellow lines being installed in Margate, opposite Salmestone primary school, will cause accidents rather than prevent them, says resident Robin Vaughan-Harlington.
Kent Highways says the lines in part of College Road and Nash Court Gardens will prevent parking which is contributing to repeated damage of the bollards and railings.
But Robin, who says he has seen numerous accidents over the years at the spot just outside his home says more yellow lines will not prevent crashes.
The wellbeing consultant said: “What they are proposing will make it even more dangerous. The problem is at certain times of the year the sun hangs low and people can’t see properly.
“Putting yellow lines there will make a narrow road look even narrower and will make the wall and bollards seem like they are more in the middle of the road and make people think they have to keep left.
“They are doing the work on the wrong side of the road in my opinion.
“If they put some speed bumps in and removed the zig zags from outside the school and replaced those with double yellow lines, the road would then be wider, reducing the risk of accidents.
“It’s a very lazy bodge job. I have told them time and time again it’s the sun and we need speed bumps. They won’t be satisfied until the road is full of yellow lines and the accidents will still happen.
“That’s what happens when you sell off land for housing, chop the trees down and then have the low sun blinding drivers.”
Kent County Council says: “The railings and bollards on the retaining wall between College Road and Nash Court Gardens have been hit numerous times. Despite sections of railings being removed and replaced with bollards, damage is still occurring as vehicles park at this narrow part of the carriageway, restricting space for other vehicles to pass, even when parked with two wheels on the footway.
“It is therefore necessary, to prevent further ongoing damage and subsequent maintenance liability, to restrict parking at the narrowest part of the road.”
