Why your views matter

Feedback from residents and the results of traffic surveys indicate concerns about traffic conditions and road safety in the Oakdale area.

The Our Streets scheme in Oakdale aims to address these issues in Oakdale, by reducing through traffic and creating safer, quieter, and more attractive streets. The Our Streets priorities that are addressed in this scheme include:

  • Safe Streets
  • Vibrant Streets
  • Healthy Streetscape
  • Attractive Streets

The proposed improvements for the Oakdale area include:

  • One-way system on George Lane and Victoria Road
  • Revising existing bus routes on George Lane, Cowslip Road and Victoria Road to align with the proposed one-way system on George Lane and Victoria Road
  • One-way system on Albert Road and Granville Road (cycles are exempt)
  • Restricting vehicle access on Pulteney Road and Southview Drive
  • Installing a pocket park on Cowslip Road to replace the existing bus stop
  • Possible extension of Oakdale School Streets to neighbouring roads.

If progressed, this scheme will be implemented using an Experimental Traffic Order which will be in place for 18 months. Using an experimental order means that amendments can be made to the scheme if required during the trial period. A monitoring plan has been developed to assess the impact of the scheme. As the 18-month trial period ends, residents’ feedback and monitoring data will be used to inform whether the scheme is retained on a permanent basis.
