Will Oxford Street Become Traffic Free?

7th November 2017

A proposal unveiled by the Mayor has revealed that a section of London’s Oxford Street could be traffic-free by next December.

A public consultation has opened into banning all forms of transport between Oxford Circus and Orchard Street.

The £60m plan is aimed at tackling growing air quality concerns, high accident and collision rates and congestion at peak travel times.

The half-mile western section between Oxford Circus and Orchard Street would be traffic-free for east-west traffic – and buses diverted – while some north-south routes would be retained.
