Today is the deadline for submissions on Kildare County Council's plans for ‘School Street’ 12-month Pilot Scheme for Athy and Monasterevin.
The scheme enables temporary closures to a street or road on which a school is located to ensure school-goers can travel to and from school "using a more sustainable mode of transport, such as walking or cycling".
Two streets have been chosen as pilot locations for the ‘School Street’ scheme, covering five schools in total:
Athy – Mount Hawkins Street
Monasterevin – Drogheda Street
Responses to the survey will be open to the public until 5:00pm this evening.
