An area in Clevedon is now a designated pedestrian and cycling zone during the day in a bid to create a safe route to a primary school.
In June 2020 North Somerset Council made temporary changes to access on All Saint’s Lane in Clevedon to help families to socially distance while walking to All Saints Primary school.
These measures have now been upgraded to stop commuters from cutting through this narrow residential street and allow families to walk safely with adequate space.
The issues with commuting traffic were also combined with parking problems increasing the need for more space for walking.
In order to create a safe route and allow for social distancing All Saint’s Lane and Carey’s Close have now been designated as a pedestrian and cycle zone between 8am and 4pm.
This means that motor vehicle access (including parents transporting children to school) is prohibited at either end of All Saint’s Lane during school hours.
