Complete Streets in Oxford
Complete Streets are for everyone. They are designed and operated to enable safe access for all users of all ages and abilities. Complete Streets make it easier to cross the streets, walk to shops, and bicycle to work. They allow buses to run on time and make it safe for people to walk to and from train stations.

In February 2015, the City of Oxford adopted a resolution to its existing complete streets policy, adopted in 2011. Access the policy here. By adopting this policy, the city recognizes its dedication to ensuring all users of the road (pedestrians, cyclists, motorists, etc.) travel safely.
Since this resolution was adopted, two complete streets pop-up projects have been implemented. The first was on University Avenue in July 2015, and the second is currently being implemented on Gertrude Ford Boulevard.
