Our Lady of Lourdes RC Primary School in Wanstead has joined Redbridge Council’s School Streets scheme.
It follows a consultation in June in which the initiative was supported. Vehicular traffic is now prohibited from entering Chestnut Drive and Highstone Avenue during term time. The restrictions are in place from 8.15am to 9.15am and from 2.30pm to 3.45pm. “Letters have gone out to residents on the affected roads, who must apply for a free exemption for their vehicle to avoid getting fined,” said a spokesperson.
