Traffic on Rockwood Road

Now that everyone – including the families of our new Year 7 students – is settling into a routine at the start of the academic year, we want to remind parents and carers of the importance of driving and parking carefully around our Rockwood gate entrance.

We must all keep our students safe as they come and go, and equally we are mindful that our busy times often have an impact on our neighbours.

It would be very helpful if you could drop and pick up students further away from the gate; Woodhall Lane would be the most sensible and least disruptive point.

It is also very important that we help to keep the traffic flowing – at a safe speed – and that when dropping off or waiting, vehicles do not block residents’ driveways.

Road markings have been made on the street which helps ensure traffic can flow freely: please respect these and do not park or wait where there are yellow lines.

There is an informal ‘one way’ system whereby drivers follow an anticlockwise circuit around Rockwood Road and Rockwood Crescent – this enables the traffic to keep moving and you will find it much easier and quicker than going against the flow.

In particular, please respect the rights and privacy of our neighbours: please always be courteous with residents by not obstruct driveways… just as you would wish around your own homes.

Thank you for your continued support.
