Oxford Street Traffic Free Day = Marylebone Bus Park !

Oxford Street Traffic Free Day = Marylebone Bus Park !

Part of Oxford Street was closed recently for “car free day” for Oxford Street, which in fact lasted for a whole weekend- with the usual predictable result for Marylebone - who is the Mayor kidding when he says this will improve air quality?

The LEN Bid process therefore offers us the chance to help improve matters. It would put additional resources into the area to enable behavioural and place changes. Equally importantly through, if we were to get a LEN, it should become more difficult for schemes to be introduced in surrounding areas that result in traffic displacement into Marylebone. The Marylebone LEN Funding Bid was submitted in April 2016 and we should be notified of the outcome sometime during the Summer.

See below for the Marylebone LEN Funding Bid Summary
