So, here we are at the end of February and still no sign of the yellow line 'Clearway' markings that are intended to prevent kerbside parking on Thame Road, near the railway station.

Local residents have become increasingly angry, indeed cynical, about the efforts of Transport for Bucks, given that the decision to designate part of Thame Road as a Clearway was taken three months ago, as a result of a survey of local residents conducted in November 2016 — see details here.

The parish council and your website editor had been led to believe that the necessary road markings would be in place by the end of February.

A recent enquiry by the parish council to establish an update on the work brought the following reply from TfB.

Thame Road Parking problems — Haddenham Station

Thank you for your enquiry regarding the problems caused by parking outside the station, Thame Road — Haddenham.

I am able to inform you that Transport for Buckinghamshire have been preparing proposals to address commuter parking problems, on behalf of Bucks CC and Haddenham Parish Council.

The Scheme preparations are now close to completion, shortly to enable undertaking line marking works to take place within Thame Road, outside the station and at adjacent locations, in the form of double yellow lines to impose new "no waiting" (no parking) restrictions.

It is intended and hoped that these Line Marking works will be installed during late March, depending on availability of Line Marking contractors.

This scheme has been in development since late Autumn, and the proposed details have been described within the parish council's newsletter. Similar coverage has also been available within the "Haddenham.net" community village web site.

I hope this information has been able to clarify your enquiry.

Regards,

Adrian Lane
