Council proposes parking crackdown around station

London commuters who let the train take the strain are also causing a headache for Great Bedwyn residents, it has been claimed.

Now Wiltshire Council has devised a scheme which looks likely to split opinion in the village.

A recent meeting of Pewsey Area Board heard that people living in The Knapp, Brook Street, Farm Lane and Castle Road are delighted by proposals for extensive parking restrictions in their part of the village.

But other residents claim the introduction of double yellow lines around the popular railway station will simply drive commuters elsewhere in the village.

Now anyone with an opinion on the proposals is being urged to attend the parish council meeting at 7.30pm on Wednesday, September 14 at the Village Hall, which will be addressed by a traffic engineer from Wiltshire Council..

As our picture (which you can click to enlarge) shows, Wiltshire Council's proposals include extensive introduction of double yellow lines around the station, from the junction near the Cross Keys pub to the canal and beyond. In other areas waiting will be limited to two hours.

Twenty two trains travel to and from London from Bedwyn every day. The first train departs for London at 5.55am, and the small car park – which unlike other parking areas along the route is free to use – is known to fill up early, leaving rail passengers to park at along the roadsides.
