    Our comments on the Traffic Reguation Orders for Access to Headington

    26 March 2016

    In our response to the original consultation on Access to Headington we said we were very supportive of the stated aims for the project but were concerned that the statements should amount to more than simple rhetoric, and that the scheme should genuinely represent the optimum solutions for the achievement of the aims. We note with regret that this is still the case, We do however welcome the fact that attention has clearly been given to the earlier comments made by ourselves and many others about the need to find alternative spaces for the parking places to be removed from Headley Way and Windmill Road, and to the concerns expressed about loss of trees, green verges and other ‘green’ amenities.

    It is difficult to make any judgements without data on problems and improvements.

    8 August 2015

    We are very supportive of the objectives of making public transport and cycling much more attractive, in the interests of reducing congestion and environmental pollution and improving public health. In principle we acknowledge that the proposals exhibited appear likely to be effective in promoting these objectives, however there is an over-arching shortcoming in that no evidence is offered in the form of data or predicted consequences, to demonstrate the effectiveness, or justify incurring the adverse effects which would inevitably result.

  • Bus Loops in the City Centre

    Our response to the Consultants’ proposals

    1 February 2018

    At an event on 9 January 2018 consultants Phil Jones Associates and Integrated Transport Planning presented their ideas for tackling the congestion problems in the city centre. While the ideas are interesting there was little opportunity for an informed debate on the potential effects of the two options presented. We hope this failing can be overcome in the next stage of the process.
