School Streets is a traffic management scheme which improves road safety and air quality outside schools.
The school road is closed to vehicle traffic at the start and end of the school day. This helps reduce congestion and air pollution, making it easier and safer to walk or cycle to school.
Why are School Streets being introduced?
The School Streets scheme aims to:
- Reduce traffic and parking pressures outside schools
- Discourage car journeys to school and encourage active travel – walking and cycling
- Make the streets outside schools safer at the start and end of the day
- Improve air quality and create a more pleasant environment for everyone
We are currently piloting the scheme at Eastlands Primary School, Rugby.
