Chiswick School Street
The Chiswick School “school street” restriction was introduced as a trial to encourage more journeys to school being made by walking and cycling. This is to be replaced by a new access restriction to general traffic on Staveley Road that will operate from 8am to 7pm, Mondays to Saturdays, except for buses and permit holders. Further details can be found here.
The Cavendish School Street trial restricted access to non-residents to the service road that runs behind the shops. A red route restriction on Edensor Road was also introduced to remove the ability for vehicles to park near the school, helping to tackle the issues of inconsiderate parking and vehicle idling during school drop off and pick up times. Following an independent review of the traffic data and consultation responses, the decision has been made to retain these trial measures on a permanent basis. In addition, the temporary footway widening east of the school will also be made permanent.

Grove Park Primary School Street
This School Street scheme introduced a “No Motor Vehicle” access restrictions on Nightingale Close, a section of Grove Park Terrace (between houses 80-94), and St Thomas’ Road (between Montgomery Court No.1-94) as shown in the plan below. As with the Cavendish School Street, following an independent review of the traffic data and consultation responses, the decision has been made to retain this trial measure on a permanent basis.
