Greens call for radical Milan-style transport changes to avoid return to high levels of car use after lockdown

Green Councillors in Oxford are calling for radical Milan-style changes to traffic management to be implemented as soon as possible to avoid a return to a car-congestions City post-lockdown [1].
Green Councillor Dick Wolff has already been working with a London-based traffic engineer to show what is possible within the City's St Mary's Ward to transform residential streets post-lockdown [2]. The same approach could be applied elsewhere. 
Says Green Councillor Dick Wolff: "Simple, inexpensive, measures to filter motorised thru-traffic down residential streets - whilst still allowing access to all properties - will transform the area leading to better air quality, less noise, fewer accidents and more cycling and walking. We should be using the tragedy of Covid-19 to carve out a better future."
