Oxford is plagued by traffic, which continues to increase. More than half the working population of the City commutes into Oxford from elsewhere. Other facilities such as hospitals, private and State schools and shopping options also help add to Oxford’s burden of traffic. West Oxfordshire District Council must campaign vigorously to reduce traffic on the A40, and this must include re-opening the Carterton/Witney to Oxford rail line. This can link at Oxford rail station to a re-opened Cowley line, offering access to other parts of the City without using a car.
