DRIVERS have been warned they will be fined if they ignore new parking restrictions in Meltham.
The village has undergone £185,000 of highways redevelopment, including traffic calming, road resurfacing and safety railings.
A new zebra crossing has been installed and zig-zag lines painted outside the Co-op shop on Huddersfield Road.
As reported on Saturday, part of the crossing had to be dug up because CE Electric, the company responsible for maintaining the lights, had failed to connect them.
The problems have now been resolved and the crossing is working.
But Meltham Town Council member Shirley Watson said there had been problems with drivers leaving cars on the crossing and the zig-zags.
“From now on there are no excuses,” she said.
“It’s dangerous and it causes an obstruction.
“There is a car park behind the Co-op and it is just lazy of people not to use it.
“We have got a CCTV camera on the town hall which looks directly onto that area and anyone caught parking illegally will be heavily fined.”
