Before and after school congestion warning

The graph below compares September 2020 vehicle journey times (when there were less people travelling on the network due to COVID-19 restrictions) with September 2019 data.

Journey time data shows that congestion is worse on the roads surrounding the school, especially at the start and end of the school day on B5163 Ashley Road between 8am-9am and 2.30pm-4pm.

This could be due to more students arriving and departing to schools via car, as well as other congestion reasons such as roadworks and incidents.

To minimise this increased congestion spike, students and parents are encouraged to have a look at the public transport alternatives and dedicated school services below.

Commercial bus services

There aren’t many or frequent bus services that go close to the school so it’s essential that if you’re going to use one that you check the timetable before leaving home.

The services that do operate are the Cat5 and the 287. They run within five minutes’ walk of the school.


Duplicate bus services

Capacity on the commercial bus network continues to be significantly reduced due to coronavirus social distancing measures.

TfGM are working with operators to run around 300 additional bus journeys each weekday across the region to help students using public transport get to and from school and college safely.

Duplicate bus journeys exclusively for school and college students run behind the original scheduled service at set times, with the usual route number starting in ‘S’ to show they are school services.

Find out which routes are supported by duplicate bus services by clicking here.


Rail services

Hale station is a 15-minute walk from the school (or quicker on your bike). Check rail services are running before you leave home and have a backup plan (just in case they are not operating).


Roadworks

The below roadworks may delay your journey to and from school

⚠️ Temporary traffic signals South Downs Road outside 'The Meadows' from 10th to 12th March whilst works are undertaken by Cadent Gas.
