Can I park on a yellow line?

You cannot park unless there is a sign that says that you can do so.

You will need to check any nearby signs on the road. 

If there aren't any signs it will mean that you are in a controlled parking zone. In this case you will need to know which area you are in.

View the map of our controlled parking zones in Redbridge.


Can I park on a Red line?

A red route zone is either a double or a single red line at the side of the carriageway. This means that you cannot stop at the side of the road.  

Red routes on Cranbrook Road (Ilford) are enforced by Redbridge. Private hire vehicles are NOT permitted to stop on this red route. 

All other red routes in Redbridge are enforced by Transport for London. For information about how to pay penalty charge notices issued on these red routes please visit Transport for London (TfL).
