New LTNs in East Oxford vandalised – Transport Xtra
Bollard and planters at three new Low Traffic Neighbourhoods in East Oxford have been vandalised. The schemes were introduced on 20 May by Oxfordshire County under an experimental traffic regulation order (ETRO) . A consultation on the schemes will run for the next six months, during which time changes can be made, after which the schemes will run for a further six-month trial period.
The East Oxford schemes have sparked local protests, but anti-LTN candidates failed to make an impact at the local elections on 5 May. Candidate
Sadiea Mustafa-Awan defected from the ruling Labour party over its support for LTNs to stand as an independent in Oxford’s Littlemore ward but failed to win the seat.
