The purpose of this project was to propose traffic control and structural improvements for the Pollards Hill section of the London Borough of Merton that would decrease the reliance upon the car as a method of transporting children to school. These changes consisted of changes to the road structure of Pollards Hill, changes to school grounds, and programmes to increase the safety and number of children walking to school. These proposals were based on the results of a survey given to school children and their parents, as well as various interviews that were conducted with school officials.
