Separately, there will be traffic disruptions, road closures and diversions around the area for the next few weeks due to planned repairs and improvements - starting with bridge works and road closures on Croxted Road and Rosendale Road until 26 January. Village Way is also closed due to essential water works. So those who currently drive to school might have to change their habits for the next couple of weeks at least.
All this means that 2014 is officially a good year for you and/or your children to try commuting on foot or by bike if you don't already. It doesn't need to be every day to make a difference.
We'd like to put together some tips and inspiration from children to publish on this website, so please forward us any suggestions, photos and ideas from children and teenagers you know who already bike to school in this area.
Happy Walking and Cycling!
