Double or single yellow lines (indicating waiting restrictions) can be used to manage parking.

You may want to request yellow lines if you notice:

  • parked vehicles causing obstruction close to a junction
  • a road safety problem (such as vehicles parking on the brow of a hill, or on a corner)

Email our Traffic Management Team with your request, giving reasons.

Yellow lines application process

After we've received your request, we'll:

  • contact you within 10 working days to let you know we've received it
  • tell you what action we'll take (if any)

If you haven't heard from us within 10 working days, contact us to check its status.

H-Bar carriageway markings

We can't introduce yellow lines to protect a private driveway entrance.

However, you can request H-Bar carriageway markings for your dropped kerb entrance.
