Cardiff school successfully delivering sustainable travel
Great to see a school that we were involved in adopting sustainable travel. Active travel is a form of travel that we encourage all the schools we work with to consider.
PEP were appointed to work on the transport planning for a flagship primary school in Cardiff by Morgan Sindall, the design and build contractor.
Following its opening, the team at Ysgol Hamadryad in Butetown, Cardiff, were determined that pupils would walk further than the front gate of the school.
As well as cycling and scooter lessons, they made local roads unsuitable for parking, which meant parents/carers would have to park further away and walk the last part. A walking bus was also set up.
The push to ensure every pupil travels to their school in a sustainable way means the air around the school has less traffic fumes and each child starts the day walking for around five to 10 minutes.
The school has been invited to advise ministers and other schools.
