The Granville Park Road Lines Saga Is Beyond Parody

Are we nearing the end of the farce being played out on Granville Park in Aughton? Last Saturday there were double yellow lines at and near the Town Green Lane junction “Co-op corner”. Last Sunday there were no lines there, all blasted away. Yesterday the double lines were back  But they are of different width. Was the cock-up that the lines were not of regulation width? Who knows?

Do I detect a lighter shade of yellow ? Officially, in environmentally sensitive areas, a pale shadow of yellow may be used and the width of the lines may be reduced, see here . Perhaps LCC employs an officer with a fondness for Procol Harum and “whiter shades of pale”?

The Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions

11. – (1) Subject to the provisions of these Regulations, a sign for conveying information or a warning, requirement, restriction, prohibition or speed limit of the description specified under a diagram in Schedules 1 to 7, Part II of Schedule 10 and Schedule 12 to traffic on roads shall be of the size, colour and type shown in the diagram .
