Upper Duke Road Closure

Following recent government guidance on COVID-19, our schools are now open for a limited number of year groups.

To support the continuing need for social distancing,the council has made the decision to implement emergency traffic restrictions that will prevent non-resident vehicles from entering roads near many schools at opening and closing times.

Parents and carers driving their children to school, will not be permitted to drive onto Duke Road between both schools’ entrances and Fraser Street.These temporary restrictions will not apply to residents who live on the street, visitors to residents, those with disabilities with a valid blue badge, delivery vehicles, or teachers. Any parking restrictions will operate as normal.

Jo - Let’s hope this becomes permanent! 🤞

Andrea - Great news. This will also allow parents and children to walk safely around the school gates and avoid the usual car jams (and idling).
