DOUBLE-yellow lines are to be brought in on a Bournemouth town centre road after concerns over road safety and access.

Waiting will be prohibited at Yelverton Road between its junction with Richmond Hill and a point 72 metres from the junction with Old Christchurch Road.

Currently, parking is permitted between 7pm and 10am on one side of the road.

One objection was received against the plans, which were advertised and consulted upon, but the concerns were deemed to outweigh the objection.

Once the lines are put in place, which the council said should be in the coming weeks, it will mean no waiting on either side of the road.
