Yellow lines are provided where there is a need to remove parking to help relieve traffic flow and prevent road obstructions.
We use two types of yellow lines within Oldham:
- Double yellow lines prevent parking at any time of the day and week
- Single lines indicate a shorter period of restriction. Signs near the parking bay advise which times parking is restricted
Loading restrictions are sometimes introduced in conjunction with double and single lines and are indicated by yellow kerb markings. Loading restriction times are displayed on a sign near the markings.
We are responsible for maintaining all lining and marking on the highway network, including both white and yellow lines.
