The Greens have long campaigned for improvements to cycle infrastructure within the City but much, much more needs to be done before Oxford can claim to be a safe, cycle-friendly city.

Too many cyclists have been injured and lives lost.

Green successes have included better signposting of cycle routes and improvements to cycle lanes on major roads and improved cycle parking. We have also backed calls for safer routes to school, speed restrictions on residential roads and improvements to The Plain working alongside local cycling organisations such as Cyclox.

Whilst the County and City Councils are planning many cycle improvements, the Greens are calling for more ‘joined up’ thinking following the recent tragic deaths of cyclists.

The Green Party is calling upon the County and City Councils to push ahead with the adoption of ‘Vision Zero’, a goal of zero pedestrian, cyclist and driver road fatalities within Oxford. We need to limit heavy vehicles entering the City, create safer junctions and roundabouts, enforce speed limits and provide segregated spaces for cycling.
