School car-free zones

  • administrators

    Car-free zones are to be introduced around some primary schools as part of a move to keep pupils safe.

    Glasgow City Council said seven primary schools are to trial the temporary pedestrian areas for 18 months to improve road safety.

    The areas will be traffic-free at certain times while pupils come and go.

    The council said the plans followed complaints about dangerous driving and obstructive parking near schools, as well as environmental concerns.

    So what schools will be affected?
    The schools chosen to take part in the pilot, and the roads affected, are:

    Bankhead Primary School - Caldwell Avenue and Broadlie Drive
    Broomhill Primary School - Elmwood Avenue and Elmwood Lane
    Hillhead Primary School - Westbank Quadrant and Otago St, to junction with Gibson St
    Lourdes Primary School - access road from Berryknowes Road
    Our Lady of the Rosary Primary School - Lourdes Avenue
    St Blanes Primary School - Arrochar Drive
    Toryglen Primary School - Drumreoch Place
