The school street trial for Alexandra School on Princes Road will be a timed closure between 08:15-09:30am and 14:30-15:45pm during school term times only starting from 14 September 2020.

We are running this scheme in direct response to issues raised by residents and councillors.

This scheme uses Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras and runs the full length of Princes Road, continuing on Arthur Road and Borough Road. The scheme will also be trialling a one way system that will run from the junction of Park Road entering Princes Road ending at Borough Road junction with Park Road. If you live on the 'Farthings Estate, please only register if you use the car park/garages accessed from Borough Road. If you live on any of these roads, you are exempt from the restrictions but MUST register your vehicle here - please note that this will be available from 4 September 2020.

Please note, that the scheme will run using ANPR cameras, but at present, there are no cameras enforcing the school street. Please do still follow the current restrictions. Cameras will be installed in October 2020.

If you are a parent at the school, we encourage you to make sustainable travel choices where possible including walking and cycling. If you do need to drive, you must not enter the restricted zone, park safely and walk the rest of your journey.
