School Streets in Hounslow

In recent years, the council has stepped up its efforts to tackle problems associated with traffic around schools at drop-off and pick-up times, notably road safety concerns, poor air quality, and inconvenience to residents.

School Street schemes aim to restrict motor traffic in the immediate vicinity of a school and reduce the use of private vehicles on the journey to and from school. The restrictions are aligned with Hounslow Council's aim to promote active and healthy communities by:

  • Improving road safety for pupils, residents and visitors to the borough
  • Increasing walking, cycling and active lifestyles for pupils and their parents and guardians
  • Minimising anti-social behaviour arising from inconsiderate parking and dangerous manoeuvres
  • Reducing engine idling and pollution in the area, including particulates, which especially impact young people
