Like a lot of other schools West Leederville Primary School is growing in population along with the community surrounding it. Great for diversity and community, not so great in terms of increasing traffic at rush hour i.e. after school pick up.

So, on the back of our active travel work with the Town of Cambridge, the P&C and School faculty, we have created a Traffic management plan to help address the impact of increasing kids and increasing cars. Please get in contact with Adam if you want to see the full proposal.

Thanks to some special volunteer effort over the first 2 weeks of Term 4 we have completed a trial of our 'traffic flow' principles and now looking to extend the 'pick-up zone' car bays plus a few other bits and pieces with the Town.

Fantastic that you've worked with all those stakeholders on a traffic management plan. Hope it leads to more active transport too!

Hi, Great story. You have done really well in creating a kiss and drive for your school in tackling issues with local congestion. It will be really interesting to know how this might influence parents to walk or cycle with their kids to school. Before you implement this it might be interesting to do a survey and then another one afterwards to compare the difference in behaviour.
