Our objectives were:
- To reduce traffic congestion during peak times, especially around the morning rush hour
- To reduce the impact of short car trips used on the school run
- To encourage parents and pupils to walk, cycle, scoot or use public transport for some of these journeys
- For pupils to benefit from increased physical activity as part of their daily routine
