City centre road changes to 'transform Oxford beyond pandemic'

Oxford is already a popular cycling city

Pedestrianised roads and designated cycle routes are part of plans proposed to "transform" Oxford's city centre "towards a cleaner and more pedestrian friendly environment", its council says.

Oxford City Council says it is exploring ideas of closing roads to traffic, creating one-way systems and removing some on-street parking, in the wake of measures put in place during the coronavirus pandemic.

The local authority claimed since the start of lockdown, air pollution in St Aldates, a major bus route, had seen a 59% reduction in nitrogen oxide levels.

It said the fall represented the "cleanest city centre air in several generations, and perhaps not previously seen since the days of the horse and cart".

Reorganising bus routes in order to create more road space for pedestrians and cyclists and suspending all loading bays during business trading hours are other proposals put forward.

Oxford City Council to suspend parking charges for key workers

Parking charges are being waived in Oxford city centre in order to support key workers during the coronavirus outbreak.

Alex Hollingsworth, councillor for planning, said the council is asking key workers to identify themselves by "placing a note in their car window" telling inspectors which essential service they work for.

He said: "The government message could not be clearer. If you are not a key worker you must stay at home and not undertake unnecessary travel. To support those key workers who are needed to keep our essential services running, the city council is suspending charges in our city centre car parks."

The suspension of parking charges will apply to the Oxpens, Gloucester Green and Worcester Street car parks only. Westgate Oxford is also offering free parking to NHS staff when they produce their ID card.
