Jericho and Walton Manor Area Pilot Scheme

Banner

Introduction 

Oxfordshire County Council is developing a new pilot traffic scheme for the Jericho and Walton Manor area and wants to hear your views. 

This consultation is on a new pilot traffic scheme and does not seek views on the existing Walton Street traffic filter that was implemented on a trial basis in November 2019. A consultation on the existing Walton Street traffic filter took place between November 2019 and May 2020. The existing trial traffic filter on Walton Street is due to expire in May 2021. 

The new pilot traffic scheme is proposed as an alternative to the existing traffic filter on Walton Street.

Following this consultation on a new pilot traffic scheme Oxfordshire County Council will decide whether to: 

  • remove the existing traffic filter on Walton Street; or 
  • make the existing Walton Street traffic filter measure permanent; or
  • remove the existing Walton Street traffic filter and introduce the proposed pilot traffic scheme

While the existing Walton Street traffic filter has brought benefits, we recognise it has also generated some concerns among the local community. The alternative proposal we are currently consulting on intends to retain the benefits of the current filter, whilst addressing the concerns we have received. 

The pilot would be introduced by an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) which will last no longer than 18 months. 

To make it easier for people to walk and cycle in this area, the proposal will restrict movements by motor traffic at these junctions: 

  • No left turn for motor traffic from Little Clarendon Street into Walton Street
  • No right turn for motor traffic from Walton Street into Worcester Street
  • No right turn for motor traffic from Beaumont Street into Walton Street
  • No U turn for eastbound motor traffic on Beaumont Street

A link to the map of the proposals can be found in the consultation documents.

To respond to the consultation please complete the questionnaire by clicking the link below.  The consultation closes on 19 March 2021.

Please remember to follow the prompt at the end of the consultation questionnaire and press finish for your feedback to be included.
