I dont want some half measures here. Its got to be full on pedestrianised, fill in the road, add benches, trees, the whole works. Otherwise, absolutely no point in this.
Taxis- 1/3 of traffic, 2% of trips. Get rid. Although, I am bit curious of the stats used on the consultation. The 2% of trips mentioned for the taxi is said to be made 'ON' Oxford as instead of 'TO'. Similarly, the buses are quoted for accounting for 40% of trips 'ON' Oxford Street, Pedestrians 56% WITHIN Oxford Street. They dont seem to consider the importance of modes getting people TO places. Like if I came from the Eastside and got off the bus at a shop on the westside I am accounted for in these stats?
