Merton Council has announced the 28 schools that will be taking part in the school street scheme from September.

The news comes after the council announced 18 school streets would be rolled out across the borough, on July 2. 

Merton Councillor Martin Whelton, confirmed that the council had received £85,000 from TFL to implement 'safer streets' in Merton.

On July 10, Merton announced the borough had secured a further £126,000 from TFL, bringing the total number of streets up to 28.

The introduction of school streets will see cars restricted during the school’s morning drop off and afternoon pick up times, during term times only.

Under the scheme, vehicles will not be allowed to enter the street at these times unless they have been granted an exemption.

Residents who live in the roads will be allowed access, as will teachers and those with special needs children who need to be driven to school.

Councillor Martin Whelton, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Housing and Transport, said: “We are delighted that Merton has received further funding of £126,000 from TFL on Friday.

"This takes our total funding from both TFL and the Government to nearly £450,000.

Wimbledon Times:

"This is just wonderful news for hundreds of families and children across Merton who will now be able to have safer and healthier journeys to school.

"We are determined to reduce congestion and improve air quality around our schools to encourage families to ditch their cars and make walking and cycling the preferred mode of travel.

"The new funding will enable us to roll out an ambitious programme across Merton, which will build on the four existing School Streets schemes we successfully introduced last year."
