Crescent Road School Street Trial

Crescent Road School Street Trial – Maiden Erlegh School in Reading, UTC Reading and Alfred Sutton Primary School

The Crescent Road School Street will go live on the morning of 28 February initially only in the mornings from 8:15am to 9:00am, with the street open as usual in the afternoons.

A minimum 6-month statutory consultation will run alongside the trial period. Comment or object to this school street here.

The running of school streets in the borough is both led and organised by schools themselves with support and guidance provided by the Council.

The temporary closure of Crescent Road between Wokingham Road and Bulmershe Road at 8.15-9.00am and 2.45-3.30pm, Monday to Friday term time only, was approved by the Strategic Environment Planning and Transport Committee on 30 June 2021, following an informal consultation with the local community.

Originally due to open in late 2021, the three local schools took the decision to postpone the launch to give them more time to enlist volunteers to become School Street marshals. More marshals will be needed for the afternoon School Street closure.
