St. John's Temporary School Street Opening (Southampton, UK)

St. Johns Temporary School Street Opening in Southampton was implemented with the aim of making a school street more child-friendly.

The street was first opened to pedestrians temporarily using portable bollards to restrict traffic for 45-minutes during school drop off and pick up times. However, coffin bollards that are lowered and raised every school day have since been permanently installed following successful implementation and a positive evaluation.
