An 18-month road safety pilot is set to begin at five Shropshire schools next month – with a sixth school to follow soon.

Five schools in Shropshire will be joining the School Streets trial next month. School Streets are streets outside of school gates that have temporary restrictions on motorised traffic - except for permit holders - during school drop-off and pick-up times.

During these times ANPR enforcement cameras will be used to monitor vehicles entering the School Streets zone and drivers without permits may receive a fine (Penalty Charge Notice - PCN) of £70.

The five schools taking part in the trial include Market Drayton Junior School, Gobowen Primary School, Woodside Primary School in Oswestry, Mereside Primary School in Shrewsbury and Whitchurch Junior School.

All schemes will launch on June 3.

Castlefields Primary School in Bridgnorth was due to take part in the pilot but recently withdrew, and a School Street will instead be introduced later in the year at St John’s Primary School in Bridgnorth.
