Work has started on a number of streets in Oxford to prepare the way for six traffic filters as part of a trial aimed at reducing traffic in the city.

Approved by Oxfordshire County Council’s cabinet in November 2022, the trial is designed to reduce traffic, improve air quality, make bus journeys faster and make walking and cycling safer.

Cllr Judy Roberts, Oxfordshire County Council’s cabinet member for Infrastructure and Development Strategy, said: ‘We expect the traffic filters trial to have a big impact, reducing traffic across the city and making it easier to get around. The filters complement other measures in Oxford aimed at improving buses, taxis, walking and cycling.’
