My questions in Parliament to get action to improve the safety and amenity of Oxford Street continue to get promises of studies and plans but no action or outcomes. In 2016 the minister said the RMS undertook a ‘multi-modal assessment’ of Oxford Street and would undertake a ‘corridor strategy’ with a draft study report to be released in mid-2017. In 2017 the minister said a ‘Movement and Place framework’ was due to be completed in 2018.
Now in 2018 the minister says RMS is finalising a ‘road Network Plan’ for Oxford Street, but gave no details about timing or community consultation. The RMS controls Oxford Street and we need it to give this important main street priority. I will continue to push for action in Parliament.
