Demands for “no parking” near a Bucks junction have been levelled at the council – after campaigners said the area is “getting dangerous”.

Petitioners have asked Bucks Council to paint yellow lines on the road near The Crown Pub in Gawcott, claiming parking within ten metres of the junction is ‘against The Highway Code’.

The problem route, they say, is from Gawcott to Buckingham, along the Buckingham Road.

“We the undersigned petition the council to introduce yellow lines at The Crown junction hill, Gawcott to Buckingham road, [with] no parking within ten metres of the junction,” the petition reads.

Parking within this range is “against [The] Highway Code”, it adds, and the junction is “getting dangerous”, they claim.

They also claimed drivers have been “forced to mount [the] kerb”, and that the path and road are “getting damaged” as a result.

The petition ends October 18.
