Private access protection markings (H Bar)

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Many bus services are now operating a reduced service. We advise you to check your journey in advance with Traveline.

Face coverings are compulsory for everyone travelling on public transport in Wales. Face coverings should be worn for the duration of the journey on public transport. This means they must be worn from when you get on the vehicle and they must stay in place until you get off.

Bwcabus fixed route services have been temporarily suspended. Bwcabus will continue to operate a pre-booked service only.

We are not running any road safety courses until further notice.

Please continue to visit our Newsroom for the latest information. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

White bar markings are reserved for sites where there is a persistent problem, with frequent obstruction of an access. It should be noted that these markings have no legal standing. However if a vehicle does park on them, the presence of the line would tend to support the offence of obstruction which is a police matter.

The lines are intended to deter drivers who would otherwise park across an access. Therefore they can be placed in residential streets with a high parking demand by non-residents e.g. near shopping or commercial areas. They will not be used where parking obstruction is by neighbours.

They shall be laid in accordance with the Road Marking Regulations and in white non-reflective material. Applicants should note that road markings will fade over time and Carmarthenshire County Council will not repaint these lines.

If the work is agreed a charge of £80 plus VAT will apply. A cheque or postal order must be sent with each application made payable to Carmarthenshire County Council.

Your application will take between 4 to 6 weeks to process
