Institutional Nodes > Schools. Identify Schools (Other High Priority Area) as a case study to alleviate the traffic and safety issues. There are six schools within the study area that contribute to traffic congestions during specific times. Create a prioritised pick-up & drop-off zone for school buses and licensed vans directly in front of school entrances via a driveway that is accessible to private motorcycle for pick-ups and drop-offs only. Private vehicles are directed to specific pick- up and drop-off zones serviced by safe passageways to and from school.

Safe passageways to pick-up and drop- off zones
