Car Free School Streets evaluation

Closed 23 Oct 2020

Opened 24 Feb 2020


Since September 2019, roads outside six schools in Birmingham have been closed to motor traffic at the start and end of the school day. This is part of a pilot scheme to reduce congestion and improve air quality at the school gates as well as making it easier and safer to walk or cycle to school.

The schools involved are:

  • Alston Primary (Heartlands ward)
  • Chilcote Primary (Hall Green South)
  • Cofton Primary (Longbridge & West Heath)
  • Featherstone Primary (Stockland Green)
  • Nelson Primary (Ladywood)
  • St Francis CE Primary (Bournville & Cotteridge)

We would like your feedback on the scheme so far. All feedback will be used to help us to monitor and assess the impact of Car Free School Streets before deciding whether they should be made permanent.
