Excessive Traffic / Polution / Noise
Reported via mobile in the Highway Schemes category anonymously at 20:40, Friday 16 April 2021
Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later
The road from Rose Hill Parade/Littlemore is inadequate for excessive traffic flow in "RESIDENTIAL" area. Also, even more so since Florence Park Road & others along Iffley Road closed off to through traffic. There needs to be another traffic exit at Rose Hill Oval to eliminate some traffic. Planning "WAS NOT" adequately executed and/or approved in consideration of long term already existing houses/residents!!!

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
In response to the issues that you raise, we understand the problem of traffic impact on residential properties along main roads. Evidence from London LTNs suggest that extra traffic which is displaced along peripheral main roads will not be significant, though this is one of the many areas that we will need to monitor.
In terms of promoting active travel, the Council has recently successfully bid for £2.98 million Active Travel Tranche 2 funding to be spent on improving cycling and walking primarily in the east Oxford arc from Headington to Littlemore. This includes funding to improve the cycle routes along Iffley Road/Rose Hill, Cowley Road/Oxford Road and B4495 (Church Cowley to Between Towns Road).
Looking to the future, the Council is developing the Connecting Oxford proposals. The objectives of the Connecting Oxford proposals are to alter travel behaviour within the ring road to promote active travel and bus use by a programme of innovative and ambitious projects. These include introducing city centre road filters to reduce traffic throughout the city and improve the reliability of buses and the convenience, safety and comfort of walking and cycling.
