A second phase of Edinburgh’s School Streets initiative is to be launched early this year.
Three new schools will participate in the scheme, which prohibits traffic on surrounding roads at the beginning and end of the school day.
The scheme will begin at Clermiston, St Peter’s RC and Towerbank Primary Schools in March.
Transport Convener, Councillor Lesley Hinds, said: “School Streets is all about promoting a safer, more relaxed atmosphere around our schools, with the aim of encouraging active and sustainable travel amongst children.
“We are already beginning to see the positive impact of the first phase of the scheme, and I look forward to seeing the effect on these three schools.”
School Streets was launched in September and October 2015 at six primary schools - Abbeyhill, Colinton, Cramond, Duddingston, St John’s RC and Sciennes. Initial feedback has shown that compliance levels for scheme have been high.
More than 30 schools across the city originally expressed an interest in participating in the pilot. The chosen locations had been experiencing road safety issues due to the number of drivers bringing cars too close to school gates.
