TRAFFIC CALMING IN OXFORD: A NEW APPROACH. A STUDY FOR THE OXFORD PRESERVATION TRUST

This study was commissioned by the Oxford Preservation Trust to examine ways of reducing traffic levels in Oxford city centre. The approach suggested is based on a proposed policy of traffic calming. In the report an analysis of the present traffic situation is made in terms of: public transport policy; cycling; parking provision; pedestrianisation; accident rate; and pollution levels. Possible solutions and future strategies are suggested, including: increased provision of cycle routes; bus priority schemes; reduction of on street parking and parking spaces; expansion of the existing park and ride schemes; a 20 mph speed limit in the city centre; increased bicycle parking facilities; and area wide traffic calming to protect residential roads from through traffic. Short term recommendations are made. (TRRL)
