Adswood’s local Councillor Ann Smith has scored a success in her campaign to stop cars parking in the Bus Stop in the centre of Adswood.
It is illegal to park in the Bus Stop and causes inconvenience to other drivers as well as residents whop use the buses that serve Adswood.
Ann, who lives up the road in Bridgehall, is just a short walk from the shops and sees the problems cars parking in the Bus Stop creates.
“This causes all sorts of problems for everyone else and I know a lot of residents, shop owners and bus users feel quite strongly about it,” she said.
“This is why I talked to the people at the Council responsible for transportation and to the local Police. I wanted to know what could be done to stop inconsiderate drivers parking in this Bus Stop.”
As a result of her action Stockport Council has recruited six new traffic wardens. Their job is to make sure the rules are being enforced locally. Ann has told residents to contact her if cars continue to park in the stop.
