Warden Hill Primary School


The Warden Hill Trial

Warden Hill 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 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.

Durham Close (from its junction with Lincoln Avenue) has been made a pedestrian and cycle-friendly environment,  Monday – Friday originally prohibiting motor vehicles between 8:15am and 9:15am and 2:30pm and 3:30pm and subsequently changed to 8:30am to 9:15am and 2:45pm - 3:30pm following the first phase of consultation. 

Residents who live directly in the affected street (Durham Close) will still have access to their properties during the closure times with a valid permit.
