Will Bus Gates and Low Traffic Neighbourhoods, change the way you travel in Oxford?

Cowley area 'modal filters' will use 'planters' to create Low Traffic Neigbourhoods.
Cowley News wants to know how you feel about the new low traffic proposals. Will the planters or ‘point closures’ and the introduction of ‘bus gates’ change the way you travel and when you travel? Have your say. Government guidelines suggest the use of “point closures” to stop short-cutting traffic using residential streets in Temple Cowley, Church Cowley and Florence Park. These are called “modal filters” because they let walking and cycling through but not cars, creating “low-traffic neighbourhoods (LTN)”. All areas within the LTN are designed to be accessible by car, but Cowley News wants to know if you would be tempted to leave the car at home for a bike of bus or other form of travel. Please feel free to comment, any questions raised will be responded to within 24hrs.

  1. In general, I’m in favour but I question the timing. Oxford council is trying to force us onto buses while the UK government is telling us to avoid them! Cycling is not an option for me as I live up a steep hill and the centre of town is a one hour walk. I can do that one way, but both ways is a stretch! So I will continue to use my car until the advice about buses changes.
