Oxford Street / Oxford Circus is a well-known shoppers’ Mecca but it can be quite stressful to shop there.
Pedestrians need to avoid the buses, the cars, the bicycles, the motorcycles if they want to ‘survive’ and get to their favourite shops.
What if there was a way to transform this shopper’s Mecca into a shopper’s Paradise?…
Well, this plan could be coming true pretty soon.
There is currently a consultation (which will close on 17 December 2017) on the way to do just that.
The idea is to make different stretches traffic-free (see picture). The pedestrianised area will also feature some public art along an 800m stretch and also some benches so people can rest (and maybe admire the art as well).
This will help make shopping in Oxford Street truly enjoyable.
