First published in Letters

Driving the buses out of Cornmarket was, I well remember, the crowning achievement of the last Oxford Transport Strategy back in 1999.

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.

Cllr John Tanner (Labour)

Board Member for a Cleaner, Greener Oxford

City Councillor for Littlemore & County Councillor for Isis

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.
