    ..and no money to pay for them.

    Joined up thinking with transport has never been OCC's strong point, that's why we've got a knackered city road network, the A34 is gridlocked daily and most towns are likewise.

    Add to that a rail & bus network that rarely meets each other on timing, and what do you get?

    Oxfordshire.
    You are correct, BUT, the council does have money, rate payers money it has squirreled away into "reserves". Now if ever there was a case for that money to be put to good use then NOW is that time. Hudspeth and his cronies, especially Rose, should have massive pressure put on them to deliver rather than sit on it and hope it will all go away, as they have done for the last 60 years. Time for action Mr Hudspeth, quit the talk, and do something positive, and if you cannot, then just quit anyway, rather than carrying on taking the wages under false pretenses."

COUNTY council leader Ian Hudspeth is planning to travel around Oxfordshire to set out his transport vision.

He will visit Witney, Didcot, Wantage, Bicester, Banbury and Henley to outline how transport can be developed to cope with a growing number of jobs and homes. He said: “Transport networks must keep pace with housing, population growth and jobs. Now is the time to talk about how we’ll achieve that.”

Around 80,000 new jobs and 100,000 new homes are expected to come to the county by 2031.

Earlier this year Mr Hudspeth set out his vision for Oxford.

The six meetings will take place between 7pm and 8.30pm at:

  • Banbury Town Hall Monday, June 23
  • Wantage Civic Centre, Wednesday, June 25
  • Littlebury Hotel, Bicester, Monday, June 30
  • Henry Box School, Witney Monday, July 7
  • Cornerstone Arts Centre, Didcot, Tuesday, July 15
  • Henley Town Hall, Wednesday, July 16.
