Tranche 2: School Streets Trial Project

What did the School Streets trial involve?

The street immediately outside the school was temporarily closed to motor vehicles. It opened the street to families on foot, bike or scooter at drop off and pick up times, giving everyone more space to get to school and move around their local environment safely.

These temporary restrictions did not apply to residents, business premises on the street, emergency services, school transport, blue badge holders, deliveries, and carers of residents on the street.

When was the trial operated?

The six week trial operated between 15th March to 1st April and 19th April to 7th May 2021.

Which Schools took part in the trial?

What times did the trial operate?

The access was restricted outside of the above schools for approximately one hour between the hours 8.00am – 10.00am & 2.00pm – 4.00pm.
