School Streets

The streets outside most schools across Ipswich have a lot of parents and guardians driving to the school causing congestion, pollution, and road safety problems.

School Streets open the street to people walking and cycling to school, allowing the road to be used instead of parents and children needing to squeeze on to the pavements. Motor vehicle movements are banned for around 45-90 minutes around the school arrival and departure times making them much safer for people walking and cycling.

School Streets have been very successful in other parts of the country.
