Although Oxfordshire’s transport system continues to be upgraded, it will face a major challenge to cope with the number of new homes and jobs being planned for in the county.
Public transport is currently crowded in many areas and roads are congested, especially in the peak hours / Many of our urban areas have poor air quality and climate change is an issue that we need to address / We need to undertake this change in the face of rapidly diminishing central Government funding. This means we need to identify new, innovative ways of solving transport problems and funding them. Resourcing projects, working with businesses, legislators, researchers and the public is key.
Collaboration is everything.
