School Streets pilots: Last chance to tell us what you think
Last chance to comment on three Wirral ‘School Streets’ pilots. Consultation on School Street pilots at St George's Primary School and St Albans Primary School, in Wallasey closes on 17 April. Consultation on the School Streets pilot at Raeburn Primary School, Bromborough closes on 30 April.
A School Street is a stretch of road outside a school that is temporarily closed to traffic during school drop off and pick-up times. This then limits traffic in the road outside the school at key times and creates a predominantly car free zone.
The scheme encourages travelling to school by walking and cycling or scooting and will in turn reduce the build-up of traffic outside the school gates, improve air quality and create a safer and more pleasant environment for everyone around schools.
The School Streets pilot is taking place at six locations in Wirral. Each of the schools will trial a School Street for 18 months and within this time, it will be decided whether to make the scheme permanent.
Each School Street may operate slightly differently to each other to help decide which method works best for the school and the local community.
