Cardinal Road Infant and Nursery – School Streets

Closed 6 Nov 2022

Opened 10 Oct 2022

Overview

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. 

Following successful implementations of School Streets schemes in other parts of the borough, and discussions with Cardinal Road Infant and Nursery School and local councillors, we are now consulting on a proposal to implement a School Streets scheme in your area. 

The access restriction, which will cover the whole length of Cardinal Road, will operate between Monday-Friday, 8.15 – 9.15am and 2.45 – 3.45pm during school term time, with exemptions for those who live within the zone (including those resident in Crown Mews), visitors to residents, those with disabilities with a blue badge, easily recognisable delivery vehicles (e.g. supermarket lorries), or school staff.  

To compliment the school street restriction, and prevent obstructive parking on the neighbouring main road, B3377 Hanworth Road, we also propose to introduce red route restrictions. 

Red Route controls place strict limitations on parking, preventing not only waiting and loading, but stopping also. They can be enforced by CCTV, unlike most other parking restrictions such as yellow lines. 

Both the school street and red route restrictions will be enforced by the Council through the use of CCTV, which could be either mobile or fixed cameras. 

Why your views matter

What are we proposing?  

The proposals include: 

  • New signs to enforce the access restrictions on Cardinal Road 

  • Double red line No Stopping “At Any Time” restrictions at the junction of Cardinal Road and Hanworth Road and on both sides of Hanworth Road, between its junction with Hounslow Road, and No. 6 Hanworth Road. 

Why are we proposing this?

The proposals form part of the Council’s commitment to promoting active travel (encourage children to walk, cycle and scoot to school), reduce pollution and improve safety outside the school.
