Whitehall Primary School - School Streets Survey

Closed 7 Jan 2022

Opened 6 Dec 2021


Bristol City Council is proposing to create a temporary walking, wheeling, cycling and scooting zone on Johnsons Lane, a small section of Johnsons Road and Woodcroft Avenue. This would involve closing the road to non-essential vehicles for approximately 35-45 minutes at school drop-off and pick-up times. The scheme would likely run from 08:30 – 09:00 in the morning and 15:10 - 15:45 in the afternoon on school days, during term-time only.

A permanent one-way system would also be introduced on Woodcroft Avenue southbound, and the existing one way on Johnsons Lane would be extended up to Oakleigh Avenue.

Residents living within the area will be able to exit the School Street zone in their vehicles at all times, but we will ask that they avoid re-entering the zone during the short period of times the scheme is in operation. Emergency vehicles and Blue Badge holders will have access to the School Street zone at all times.

The aims of the proposed scheme are to tackle congestion, unsafe parking and air pollution at the school gates and to make it safer and easier to walk, wheel, cycle and scoot to school. It should also reduce the impacts of school traffic for local residents.

We are asking what you think of our proposals regarding the introduction of a School Street outside Whitehall Primary School. Your views will help us to inform the design and guide our approach to the scheme. There will be further opportunities to comment before the decision on whether to implement the School Street is made.

Please respond to this survey no later than Friday 7 January 2022.  This survey should not take longer than 10 minutes to complete. You do not have to answer all the questions, but the more you tell us, the more we can take your views into account.
