Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council – Solihull School Streets

Safer Roads, 2019

Solihull School Streets addresses challenging and unsafe traffic scenes outside primary schools by introducing a traffic-free zone.

Restrictions prevent parents and other road users driving in, out or around an exclusion zone at the start and finish of the school day, creating a predominantly car free area, along with a new 20mph speed limit.

Benefits have been a reduction in traffic speed, dangerous congestion and air pollution creating a safer environment thereby encouraging families to walk or cycle.
