Perhaps then, we could have a police officer there to help direct traffic after the match. It's called co-operation.


I'm surprised that the police don't stop people parking in the passing points on Tinkley Lane. It causes absolute chaos after matches as cars going in opposite directions just cannot pass, resulting in lengthy jams and sometimes, raised tempers after games. Can they not put double yellows in the passing points????

Agreed. If cars were prevented in parking in the passing places there and on the hill then the flows to and from the ground would be infinitely better. There is still a lack of parking at the ground (when the field is shut) but getting the traffic moving would help after the game.

TimB has suggested car sharing and that is the way to go.

Wondering :?

Would I get any takers who wouldn't mind a 1 mile (or just over) walk up the hill to the ground?

Hi
Rules 155 & 156 in the Highway Code are NOT legal requirements, contravention can only be used in evidence to support other charges.
The police are not responsible for the siting of yellow lines.
From the Traffic Signs Manual
The Double Line rule is:
Figure 13‑6 Diagram 1018.1 (S7‑4‑1) Waiting of vehicles prohibited at all times or stopping
of vehicles in a lay-by prohibited except in an emergency.
The single line rule is:
Figure 13‑7 Diagram 1017 (S7‑4‑2) Waiting of vehicles prohibited for a time that is
not continuous throughout the year,

Both those rules would prohibit using the lay-byes for their designated purpose as passing places.
Plus the only way either the above or the normal rules for passing places could be enforced would be to have an officer positioned at each passing place.

It should also be said that with soft verges such as along Tinkley Lane they would very soon be covered up by field runoff or dirtt scrubbed out from the verge, which would also make them un-enforceable.

TRO's and TTRO's Greeners.

They're a political minefield.

Ultimately the LA approve them only after Police approval.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
