A resident believes the council has not done enough to help keep road users safe despite putting down more double yellow lines in Welshpool.

In the last week the county council has been putting in extra lines in Welshpool to prevent on-street parking.

Near the turning for the Dol-y-felin estate, new lines have gone down, however one resident is not happy.

Arthur Billington, who has contacted the council in the past, believes more work needs to be done.

He believes yellow lines have not been added far enough up the road and he is still concerned about the safety of road users.

He said: “Driving right is fine, but left is still a problem.

“It is just a danger to road users, you have to come so far out to see what is coming, and by the time you do, you might be hit by another car.”
