Arklow Schools included in SRTS programme

Two Arklow schools are set to receive government funding to improve walking and cycling facilities for children. SS. Michael and Peter Junior School and St. John’s National school have been included in the Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programme. The programme is funded by the Department of Transport through the National Transport Authority and aims to ;

  • Improve safety at the school gate by providing ‘front of school’ treatments to alleviate congestion and improve access;
  • Improve access routes to school by improving walking and cycling infrastructure;
  • Increase the number of students who cycle to school by expanding the amount of cycle parking.

The programme is part of a €15m investment with 150 schools included nationwide.
