Multiple waste vans parked along street causing obstructions

Reported via desktop in the Abandoned vehicles category anonymously at 10:18, Wednesday 29 June 2022 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Royal Borough of Greenwich 5 minutes later

Multiple scrap metal/waste collection vans parked at 75 to 77 William Barefoot Drive. Counted 6 vans this morning. Causing an obstruction to the flow of traffic & blocking safe exit for vehicles driving from Witherston Way. Witnessed a cyclist this morning narrowly escape a collision with oncoming traffic due to vehicles having to squeeze through these parked vans. Also looks incredibly unsightly , having these vans loaded with waste sitting there all day. Please can the owner of these vehicles park them somewhere more suitable & to try and clean up the street? Many thanks for all your help.
