School Streets - Liscard Primary School

Liscard Primary School and Wirral Council are working together to trial a ‘School Streets’ scheme outside the primary school.

A School Street is a stretch of road outside a school that is temporarily closed to traffic during school drop-off and pick-up times.

The roads that will be closed to general traffic at Liscard Primary School will be:

  • Manor Lane, between Withen’s Lane and Penkett Road

This limits traffic in the roads outside the school at key times and creates a predominantly car free zone.

The map below shows which roads will be closed during the School Street operational hours.

When will the School Street be in operation?

Manor Lane will be closed to general traffic between Withens Lane and Penkett Road Monday to Friday between 08:30 am to 09:00 am and 2:45 pm to 3:45 pm. Only pedestrians, cyclists or motorists with an exemption will be able to access the School Street during these times.

Why are you introducing a School Street?

Prior to the road closure operated by the school, Manor Lane was heavily congested with school traffic and the narrow width of the road and lack of pavements increased the chances of conflicts for children walking and cycling to school.

This scheme will encourage families to walk, cycle, scoot or park further away from the school and walk the last part of the journey. Many children and families are already doing this, and it would be great to see even more people joining them.

Where can I park to drop my child/children off?

Please refer to the map showing which roads will be closed.

We are actively encouraging people to walk, cycle or scoot to school. If you have limited options to do this due to work commitments etc. we would encourage people to park and stride for the remainder of the journey. The council will work with the schools involved and their community to make sure that alternative suggestions are considered.

If you are parking on roads outside of the School Street zone please be considerate of residents (for example, by not parking over driveways) and existing parking restrictions.

How can I have my say?

You can share your ideas by taking part in the survey below where you can tell us if you support or object to the School Streets scheme.
