A RAFT of parking prohibitions will be rolled out on Canning roads at the request of businesses and residents in a bid to reduce congestion.

Parking will be banned along the northern side of Duke Street in Bentley, following concerns the road is reduced to a single lane when cars park kerbside along both sides of the road.

The increase in on-street parking in Duke Street, between Chapman Road and York Avenue, is believed to be most likely as a result of group-housing developments offering insufficient on-site parking to accommodate residents and visitors.

‘No parking’ restrictions will also be introduced during peak school traffic times along the northern side of Melrose Street.

The council supported relocating the parking on Janet Street from the southern side to the northern side, allowing students to alight onto the footpath, and an addition of ‘no stopping’ at the intersection of Janet Street and Donna Street will ensure the intersection is kept clear.

Suez Environment on Kurnall Road, Welshpool, complained to the City of Canning when large trucks parked in front of their property.

A ‘no parking’ sign will be installed outside Suez Environment, and a ‘no stopping, road and verge sign’ at the intersection or Kurnall and Sheffield Roads to ensure the carriageway is kept clear.

Parking prohibitions will be lifted on the corner of Fletcher Street and Leila Street in Cannington where current prohibitions are preventing the legal use of parking embayments at a new development.

The City also received a request from Abode Strata, on behalf of the owners and residents of 18 Gibbs Street, East Cannington, to help remove the verge parking that exist along their frontage.

Residents say parked vehicles are interfering with visibility of exiting vehicles from the property.

A ‘no parking, road and verge’ sign will go along the remaining Renou Street frontage of 18 Gibbs Street.

Councillors also authorised the removal of 15-minute parking restrictions along Coker Park Access Road near the Cannington Community College, and the installation of amended parking prohibitions along Wharf Street in Cannington.
