    Transform Oxford

    Our plans to transform the transport and pedestrian experience in Oxford city centre.

    Transform Oxford was launched in Autumn 2008 to transform the pedestrian experience in Oxford city centre. We want to achieve the standard of pedestrian experience that the city deserves, whilst maintaining good, safe access for everyone to great shopping and public spaces with improvements in air quality.

    Frideswide Square

    On 13 March 2012, our Cabinet approved a plan to transform Frideswide Square – one of Oxfordshire’s most important road junctions and public spaces. The aim is to create a square that can better handle the tens of thousands of journeys that use it every day, with traffic flowing slowly but steadily – creating a safe, efficient and attractive environment for all road users.

    The scheme is a key part of the regeneration of Oxford’s West End. Together with improvements to the railway station (which has experienced 50 per cent passenger growth since 2003) expected over the next few years, it will create a high quality, welcoming gateway for Oxford.

    The improvements will also help to pave the way for future growth across the West End of Oxford, boosting the Oxfordshire economy.

    The design

    In March 2011, the council approved a design approach for Frideswide Square with no traffic signals and including compact roundabouts. Two options based on roundabouts (the ‘Oval’ and ‘Boulevard’) were approved.

    Further planning, design and consultation on the two options was completed during 2011 and early 2012. In March 2012, officers reported this further work to the council’s Cabinet and recommended that the Boulevard option should be pursued.

    The Cabinet agreed this recommendation on 13 March. The Boulevard was supported by local organisations and the council believes this option will better help businesses occupying the square, will be more deliverable because the work would not involve land beyond the highway boundary, and will be more flexible to future developments in the area.

    Detailed design work on the scheme will be completed during 2012, with a target construction start date early in 2013.
