For many years there have been issues with congestion and parking on Dryden Road and the surrounding streets and these present an obstacle for residents, parents, students and the school.
In September 2020 Sustrans Cymru were awarded a contract through the Welsh Government Core Allocation Active Travel Fund to deliver a Community Street Design at Fairfield Primary School. The aim of this project is to encourage and facilitate active travel to school by combining infrastructure improvements and behaviour change to create a safer environment.
Funding has been given through the WG SRiC fund in FY21/22 to continue this project and create an environment to encourage active travel.
Further details on this project can be found on the Sustrans website:
Consultation on proposed improvements took place during October 2021 and the final consultation report can be seen here: Consultation report - Fairfield School SRiC 16.11.21
