Lincolnshire County council have made the following comment regarding the double yellow lines workmen painted on the cobbled streets in Stamford, which washed away.
We know that Stamford’s cobbled streets are an important landmark for its residents and visitors alike. We also want to protect its appearance by ensuring that parking restrictions are enforced in the area. However, applying the usual methods of laying yellow lines with liquid paint is difficult on this tricky surface. We used these lines as a trial to assess their durability here. As it hasn’t worked, we’re already looking into alternative solutions and will get these in place as soon as we possibly can.”_
