Harrow School Street Scheme will be in operation in this area, from 1 September 2021.
A School Street is a road with a school on it, or nearby, that becomes a vehicle-restricted zone at the start and end of the school day. The scheme is controlled using CCTV enforcement cameras and there are traffic signs at the entry points to the zone, to inform drivers of the restrictions. All vehicles without permits that enter the zone during operating times, may be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).
The School Street restrictions will continue to run Monday to Friday, term time only, from 8.00am to 9.30am and 2.30pm – 4.00pm, on Marlborough Hill (between Rusland Park Road and Harrow View), Leys Close, Rugby Close, Ranmoor Gardens and Badminton Close.
Introduced in 2020, the experimental School Street, is designed to reduce traffic and congestion around the school entrance at key times, improve road safety and local air quality. The trial period for the scheme was extended for six months, following Harrow Council’s Cabinet decision earlier this year, and will run through until late Autumn, when a full consultation will be carried out.
