Oxford Street Is Being Pedestrianised

Oxford Street, the most famous street in London and yet the one that most Londoners tend to avoid – why? Because it’s just.so.busy. You’ve got the four million people visiting each week, the cyclists and the taxis. Not for much longer though. This morning Sadiq Khan announced that large parts of Oxford Street could be pedestrianised by December 2018.

At the moment, the plan is to have a traffic-free zone from Oxford Circus to Orchard Street and this doesn’t just include buses and taxis but also bikes. There are some exceptions being proposed such as taxis being able to cross at Duke Street, Vere Street, Harewood Place and Stratford Place as well as talks about having an 800m-long work of public art.

In summary, Sadiq is turning Oxford Street from a living nightmare at times to somewhere us Londoners might actually choose to go to, not just have to go to.

The plans are out for consultation until 17th December
