What are red route restrictions?
Red Route controls are already used on roads like Syon Lane, Wood Lane and the A4 - placing strict limitations on parking and stopping for most vehicles. There are limited exceptions to allow taxis and vehicles displaying a valid Blue Badge to stop on red routes for the purposes of picking up/dropping off a disabled person.
As with School Streets, these controls can be enforced by CCTV, unlike most other parking restrictions such as yellow lines.
Like yellow lines, Red Route restrictions can take the form of a double red line ("no stopping at any time") or a single red line enforceable during the times shown on a nearby sign.
Unlike School Streets, red route controls operate all year round.
