TRO-18-2020 Various Roads Schools Closure

Closed 1 Sep 2021

Opened 27 Aug 2020

Overview

This order will ban motor vehicles Monday to Friday, term time only, from 8am to 10am and 2pm to 4pm, except for access on:

  • Florence Place
  • Grantham Road
  • Somerhill Road
  • Highlands Road
  • Park Close
  • George William Mews

On Grantham Road between Ditchling Road and Edburton Road driving will be banned Monday to Friday 8am to 10am and 2pm to 4pm .

On Somerhill Road driving will be banned at any time at its junction with Lansdowne Road.

The closure of roads outside schools at these times will give more space to pedestrians to improve safety, while also improving air quality.

It will also make it a quieter and safer area for cyclists.

Where banning vehicles isn’t possible, there are some locations where a wider pavement will enable physical distancing at the school gate.

It may be necessary to restrict parking opposite some sections of widened pavements for vehicles to pass safely.
