Oxford Road multi-modal enhancements – cars

The issue  

High amounts of traffic on Oxford Road cause congestion. Traffic on the road consists of cars, freight deliveries and buses. The congestion affects air quality and safety in the area and discourages cycling.

  • Potential re-routing of freight traffic onto more suitable routes

The outcome  

  • Reduced congestion  
  • Improved air quality 
  • Increase in walking and cycling levels 
  • Improved bus journey time reliability 
  • Shift to more use of public transport
