Dangerous junction / restriction of junction view due to parking

Reported via mobile in the General road marking and stud issues category anonymously at 11:24, Wednesday

Sent to Gloucestershire County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6212585.

Danes Hill/ Maddock Rd/ ormerod Rd, I had an accident at this junction back in December 2023. This follows a series of near misses from myself and others. The issue is a line of parked cars on the road as you go up Danes Hill at the junction forcing traffic into the wrong side of the road into oncoming traffic which has an obstructed view. The oncoming traffic is also blinded by low sun at certain times of the year. Please can a highways engineer review this and suggest safety improvements urgently including dispersing the parked vehicles to prevent further accidents.
