When will the government act to improve Oxford Street?
In 2014 the minister said that Roads and Maritime Services would carry out an ‘independent strategic review’ of the Oxford Street corridor in 2015-16, HERE. In 2016, the minister said a draft report would be released mid-2017, HERE. Now the minister says that it’s a ‘multi-modal road network plan’ and part of a ‘Movement and Place’ framework due in 2018, HERE.
The current arrangement gives priority to fast moving through-traffic, undermining high street small businesses, visitors and the adjacent community.
