Need for bus gates questioned by Oxford resident

Hythe Bridge Street in Oxford could be the site of a bus gate. George Street - to the right of this picture - already has a bus gate

A resident has questioned whether a trial of two temporary bus gates to stop cars driving through Oxford city centre will be necessary.

A bus gate will be introduced in August by Oxfordshire County Council on Hythe Bridge Street or Worcester Street, with the other on St Cross Road or South Parks Road.

There are already bus gates in High Street, George Street and Castle Street.

Resident Richard Parnham said: “[The county council] has sprung these proposals under the cover of Covid. They previously said they would consult and model but they’re rushing them through so it’s a rush job and I’m not sure why it’s so urgent.”

But Oxford City Council’s deputy leader Tom Hayes, who supports the trial, said: “They’re temporary, they could be pulled out. So when the consultation gets underway after the bus gates have been launched, we want to hear from people.”

The date the trial will be launched has not been confirmed.
