Plans are afoot to make Botley Road more sustainable, with funding being made available 18/19 and 19/20.
According to the County Council website,
‘The project will be a major step towards Oxford Transport Strategy proposals for bus rapid transit and a cycle super route on this corridor.
Cyclists will be physically segregated from traffic and pedestrians throughout most of the route; and new bus lanes and better traffic management will speed up bus journeys.
The funding will also allow the county council to improve the condition of the road surface so that all road users benefit from better ride quality. ‘Smart City’ sensors will also be installed along the corridor to enable the collection and transmission a range of traffic and travel information.’
