Oxford Low Traffic Neighbourhoods: Map ‘glitch’ shows dozens of roads closed – BBC News
2 hours ago
A technical glitch has seen dozens of roads in Oxford incorrectly appear closed on satellite navigation devices.
According to platforms such as Google Maps and TomTom, barely any routes appear open through the east of the city.
Oxfordshire County Council said it happened after it submitted data on new Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs) to a Google “network management system”.
It said work was under way to resolve the issue “as soon as possible”.
Some road blocks and bollards are in place in Church Cowley, Florence Park and Temple Cowley as part of the council’s LTN scheme.
It is part of an attempt by the authority to create quieter, safer neighbourhoods.
