Safe walking spaces to shop must be preserved

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.

Care from NHS has been just excellent

Oxford Mail: Nurse got me through some difficult times

10:00am Tuesday 25th November 2014

I guess that it is time for those who have benefited from the good work of the NHS to have their say. I have just endured a run of bad health that you only read about other people having.

We need alternatives rather than this idea

Oxford Mail: Nurse got me through some difficult times

10:00am Tuesday 25th November 2014

Local planners and local politicians leave me in despair. Their innovative ideas include bypassing the A34 bypass.

Why not dig a tunnel and go under Botley?

Oxford Mail: Nurse got me through some difficult times

10:00am Tuesday 25th November 2014

I read with interest Andy Ffrench’s front page article on unblocking the A34 (November 24).

A costly source of even more house building

Oxford Mail: Nurse got me through some difficult times

10:00am Tuesday 25th November 2014

Stephen Webb’s letter, ‘The council needs to reconsider its plans’, November 21, promoting the use of brownfield sites shows a wholly naïve misunderstanding of their use in relation to meeting the appalling housing targets being imposed upon the region as a result of the Strategic Housing Market Assessment.

Opening slip road would alleviate the problems

Oxford Mail: Nurse got me through some difficult times

10:00am Tuesday 25th November 2014

As a resident/prisoner of Kennington, I have become used to the village being cut off on a regular basis due to flood/landslide/roadworks but can anyone explain why the slip road into Kennington, as you approach from the intended new hamburger, is still closed?

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.
