Are these double yellow lines the shortest in Kingston?

The lines are behind Metro Bank and the Wheelwright Arms in Kingston town centre.

Oliver English, who took the photo, said: "I spotted them some weeks ago and I think it's stupid and a bit pointless.

"As a motorcyclist the way they have made the access road look pedestrian is very dangerous for pedestrians and motorcyclists.

"The pavement feels slippery underfoot and it isn't immediately obvious that it is still a road."
