What active-travel initiatives would you like to support in your local area?
I have actively supported the development of a comprehensive walking and cycle network for Abingdon, 20mph area in the wider town centre, school streets round schools, challenged unsafe roundabout designs, and supported whole routes between the town and local employment centres.
Please summarise your views on the future for transport in Oxfordshire.
We have to radically change the balance of transport towards active travel for local trips and expanded rail and bus capacity for longer trips. We also need to rebalance planning policy so that we don’t keep increasing the need for commuting. Massive opportunities to do this have been repeatedly missed. The new council has to do better.
