First published in Letters

The next transport shake-up must do even more to provide safe, convenient and attractive walking space for shoppers, visitors and students alike to dream in our city of spires.

Wasn't the "crowning achievement of the last Oxford Transport Strategy" the misleading slogan "It'll be terrific without the traffic"?

And it wasn't terrific at all.
