Widden Primary School
Widden Primary School had been experiencing hazardous parking and congestion near the school gate, causing some road safety issues. The School Streets trial proposed, by way of an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order, to legally close the street(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 proposed scheme?
Sinope Street (from its junction with Napier Street) will be made a pedestrian and cycle-friendly environment prohibiting most vehicles between Monday – Friday between 8:15am and 9:00am and 2:45pm and 3:30pm.
Residents who live directly in the affected street will still have access to their properties during the closure times with a valid permit.
