Plans are in place to close sections of Oxford Road to all traffic but special buses (and bikes?). The scheme won’t begin for around five years and is dependent upon the introduction of a congestion charge and the access to funds that will allow.
Oxford Road is already officially the busiest bus route in Europe. Perhaps it’s time to let them take some of it over. The planned closed section covers the only part of the road that I regularly cycle on, from around the University all the way into the centre, so I hope they intend to stick a cycle lane into the mix.
