White Bar Markings

A white bar marking is a non-enforceable line marked on the road across a crossover. Itís purpose is to notify other drivers that vehicles accessing the crossover require the marked amount of space to safely turn in and out of the crossover.

It is important to note that white lines are provided for advisory purposes only. If somebody has parked in front of your property and you have an existing dropped kerb, you may contact the London Borough of Hounslow's Parking Team on 0208 583 5451/5452 during office hours.

How do I apply for a white bar marking?

You will need to have an existing authorised crossover in place. Additionally, you cannot have any existing parking restriction lines i.e. yellow lines in front of the crossover. Your application will only be considered if you meet the above criteria.

Please download and complete the application form at the bottom of this page. Please do not submit payment with your application.

You can return the application by post to White Bar Marking, Hounslow Highways, Jubilee House, Depot Road, TW3 1SN. Alternatively, please scan and attach the form via our Contact page. Please select White Bar Marking in the enquiry description field.

What happens once I have submitted my application?

Hounslow Highways will carry out a site assessment of the crossover and confirm the traffic arrangements with the London Borough of Hounslow. We will then inform you if your application has been accepted or rejected. It is only following acceptance of your application that we will request payment. Please note, at present, white bar markings cost £87.

Installation and post-installation

Hounslow Highways will install the white bar marking in front of your crossover within 28 days of confirmation that your payment has been accepted.

If the London Borough of Hounslow introduce parking restrictions in your area such as yellow lines and subsequently remove your white bar marking, you will not be entitled to a refund on your installation fee.
