How will the positive outcomes of the Workplace Parking Levy build over time?
The levy will raise money to support enhanced public transport services and connections. As more people switch from their cars to travel to work, there will be less congestion. Reduced traffic congestion is essential to release road space which can be used to create cycle space or walkways.
With more, higher quality, well connected cycle lanes and walkways, more people will choose to travel to work by bike, bus, train or on foot. Air pollution will continue to improve and more people choose to enjoy the clean air and convenience of the good cycle routes and great public transport options.
This is why so many changes to transport and travel are being planned in and around Oxford, because they all play a part in transforming air quality and travel connectivity, and need to work together for maximum effect.
