Bristol School Streets - Wansdyke-School-maps2

Bristol City Council is working closely with the school to investigate and develop the pilot. The scheme will come into action from Monday 24 February 2020.

This will involve making School Close a pedestrian and cyclist priority zone, between 08:30-09:15 and 14:45 – 15:30 on weekdays during term time.

There will be clear signage to inform drivers that they are entering a school streets zone. The zone will be enforced and motor vehicles without and exemption permit could be issued with a fine.
