Brookburn School Streets Trial - Evaluation Phase

Further Information


Brookburn School Streets

Brookburn Primary is one of 7 schools in Manchester and one of fifty across the region which took part in the Transport for Greater Manchester School Streets trial. The scheme aims to improve active travel, road safety, and reduce air pollution in the areas surrounding the school.

The trial period ran from February to November 2023 and evidence gathered during this trial is now being evaluated by Manchester City Council.  The School Street at Brookburn continues to operate during the evaluation period as the council considers recommendation for a permanent scheme.

School Streets offer a temporary restriction on motorised traffic through Brookburn Road during the morning and afternoon school run to allow for a calmer, greener, and more active approach to the school gates. This initiative is operating in partnership with Transport for Greater Manchester, Manchester City Council, Brookburn Primary, Brookburn Parent Teacher Association (PTA), and WalkRide Greater Manchester.

The School Street is currently operating on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays during school pick up and drop off times (8:30-9:10, 15:10-15:50). This means that vehicles approaching Brookburn Road from the direction of the Bowling Green Pub or from Claude Road will not have through access. Only vehicles needing to access households 5 Brookburn Road to 41 Brookburn Road in a south easterly direction will be granted access into the closure zone.

The School Streets is a community-based initiative that relies on volunteers marshals to make it happen. The goal is to run the trial 5 days a week, but we need more volunteer marshals to make this happen. If you can spare one hour a week to help during the morning or afternoon school run, please email

Anyone interested in finding out what's involved with marshalling a School Street can click here to view a webinar offered by WalkRide Greater Manchester. 



Manchester Council has collected comments regarding Brookburn Primary's School Street trial and two university-led research projects have monitored the impact of the trial on traffic volume and resident perceptions. The University of Manchester's Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research is currently carrying out resident interviews and data gathered during this study will be analysed over the coming months. The University of Aberdeen's Listen 2 Manchester Citizen Science Research Project has produced a research paper outlining findings and continues to monitor traffic volume. 

The council has given permission for Brookburn Primary to continue with its School Street during the evaluation phase. There is currently no indicated timelines as to when the evaluation process will be completed.
