Are there any alternatives being suggested?

A:

Instead of pedestrianisation, there are lots of ways to improve the environment in the West End which fairly balance the different needs of road users:

  • Banning non-public forms of transportation from Oxford Street, such as private vehicles, freight and private hire vehicles (PHVs)
  • Introduction of shared spaces in sections of the street
  • Making Oxford Street one-way for traffic
  • Allowing only zero emissions vehicles on Oxford Street
  • Introducing more taxi ranks along Oxford Street
  • Better enforcement of pre-existing traffic controls restricting private traffic along Oxford Street
  • Better co-ordination of construction and servicing vehicles
