LONDON Road in Headington is one of the most congested roads in the city.

Various solutions have been proposed to try to improve it over the years, but it has left a lot of heads being scratched.

Put simply, there are just too many cars on the roads and there isn’t really anything that can be done about it.

But with news of an extended cycle lane along the whole stretch of the road it may encourage more people to get out of their cars and on their bikes.

Any improvements to the area should be welcomed.

While it may not be the complete answer to the problem, at least the authorities are still looking at things that can be done.
