Are there any alternatives being suggested?


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
