AMBITIOUS plans have been made to cut car journeys in Oxfordshire by a quarter over the next eight years.
Oxfordshire County Council is currently urging the public to have their say on a blueprint aiming to deliver a zero-carbon transport network by 2040.
The main goals of the Local Transport and Connectivity Plan, which was approved last October, include cutting car trips by a third by 2040.
It also plans to increase the number of cycling trips around the county from 600,000 to one million by 2031.
Environmenta campaigning groups, including Planning Oxfordshire’s Environment and Transport Sustainably (POETS) and Oxford Friends of the Earth, have praised the council for its plan.
