Tewkesbury CofE Primary School
The Tewkesbury Trial
Tewkesbury C of E Primary School has been experiencing hazardous parking and congestion near the school gate, causing some road safety issues. The School Streets trial proposes, by way of Experimental Traffic Regulation Orders, to legally close the road(s) around the school to most of the traffic at school opening and closing times. It is hoped that this trial will further encourage a reduction in numbers of children being driven to school and to improve air quality at peak times.
What is the proposed scheme?
Rope Walk (from its junction with Chance Street) will be made a pedestrian and cycle only zone Monday – Friday between 8:15am and 9:15am and 2:30pm and 3:30pm.
Residents who live directly in the affected street (Rope Walk) will still have access to their properties during the closure times with a valid permit.
