Tewkesbury CofE Primary School
The Tewkesbury Trial
Tewkesbury C of E Primary School was experiencing hazardous parking and congestion near the school gate, causing some road safety issues. The School Streets trial has proposed, 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 continue to encourage a reduction in numbers of children being driven to school and to improve air quality at peak times.
What is the scheme?
Rope Walk (from its junction with Chance Street) has been made a pedestrian and cycle-friendly environment, Monday – Friday originally between 8:15am and 9:15am and 2:30pm and 3:30pm and subsequently changed to 8:30am to 9:15am and 2:45pm to 3:30pm after the first phase of consultation.
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.
