We need traffic reduction
Traffic levels are now above pre-Covid levels leading to overcrowding on Oxford’s roads and to more irate, impatient drivers and more dangerous driving. We badly need proper traffic reduction measures – not just ghostly white outlines of bicycles on the road.
It is now more than two years since the Gilligan report, Running out of Road, said that Oxford’s urgently needs safety measures for cycling across junctions and three years since the City Council adopted the Claudia Charter demanding high standard cycling provision at junctions. Yet we still have no safe junctions in Oxford. In fact, the County Council has just decided not to go ahead with two bus gates which would have helped reduce traffic levels.
