Options for “radical” changes to Oxford’s transit layout are discussed in a City Council news release here.
These options are being presented for debate, with no preferred option identified at this stage.
Further discussions will also be held between the city council and the county council on how these, or potentially other proposals, might be taken forward following the consultants’ report.
Ultimately the consultants’ options and any recommendations are intended to inform the city council’s emerging Local Plan 2036 and a future update of the county council’s Oxford Transport Strategy.
The options complement the proposed Zero Emission Zone and the proposed demand management options, including a Congestion Charge and Workplace Parking Levy. This reduction in demand will enable the traffic flows envisioned in the new transport options.
