School Street Road closures

Southwark School Streets Logo

In September 2018, Southwark Council introduced a programme called School Streets. The aim of the initiative is to improve the safety and air quality around schools and to encourage a safer, healthier and more pleasant environment for everyone.

How it works

The existing School Street schemes have shown that enlisting the full involvement of the school and community is key to success.

The way it works is by having a temporary restriction on motorised traffic at school drop-off and pick-up times. The restrictions apply to school traffic and through traffic. Resulting in a safer, healthier and pleasant environment for everyone.

School Street schemes offer a proactive solution for school communities to tackle air pollution, poor health and road danger reduction. A School Street scheme will encourage a healthier lifestyle and active travel to school for families and lead to a better environment for everyone.

What’s next

We will continue to work closely with Southwark schools that actively campaign on improving road safety and air quality, while also reporting road safety concerns in their school area. We will be assessing schools based on criteria that consider their location and whether they are on a low or medium traffic route.

If you are interested in your school taking part in the Southwark School streets programme please email highways@southwark.gov.uk to make your request.
