Safe School Streets require several elements to be successful: thoughtful design and active travel infrastructure, a robust policy framework and the ability to enforce traffic constraint and physical/policy interventions. Enforcement also brings the possibility of additional revenue streams for local authorities facing severe funding shortages.
Across the UK, local authorities are making headway with the delivery of School Street schemes, which tackle road danger reduction, air pollution and poor health using a mix of such physical and policy interventions.
This webinar will explore the needs of schools, local authorities, pupils and parents, and outline the key solutions available:
- Enforcement options
- Street closures and traffic restraint
- Design and engineering
- Policy interventions
