Better Oxford Street Campaign calls for consultation response opposing pedestrianisation

The Future of Oxford Street - Your Views Please

The Future of Oxford Street - Your Views Please

Monthly meetings are being held on the future of traffic on Oxford Street involving Transport for London, Council officials and representatives of residents groups in the West End Community Network, including the Marylebone Association. Data is being gathered on traffic flows and modelling is under way to examine the possible effects of changes to Oxford Street on the wider area.

Please let us know your views to feed into these early discussions. Use the comment facility below this article to send us your views
