New parking restrictions have come into force on Skegness seafront today.

Following a successful trial last summer where marked bays were allocated to coaches dropping passengers off, the new restrictions are aimed at reducing congestion caused by cars parking on both sides of the road, which also made it difficult for pedestrians to cross safely.

The new restrictions were approved by Lincolnshire County Council between South Parade and North Parade last month.

They include areas for buses and coaches, dedicated disabled parking bays and loading bays as well as more stringent parking restrictions on some sections.

Coun Richard Davie, executive member for highways and transportation, said: “These restrictions will go a long way to help ensure traffic can flow adequately, especially during summer months when the number of vehicles travelling along this road increases significantly.

“They will also help to improve road safety, in particular near the Embassy Centre and Seal Sanctuary where parking can cause problems.”
