Avery proposes rival vision for pedestrianising Oxford Street


Ah..would that we could just get rid of the buses in Oxford Street at the snap of a finger (which I'd love to see) but unfortunately, for better or for worse, they're now an essential part of London's transport system and without buses people of limited means will still need to get from one side of the city to the other and go to work or go shopping there. The question I've posed is simply that if the buses cannot be removed or redirected, as I suspect they can't, how then can the city's transport needs ever be met? Without a solution to that question, and I haven't yet seen one, this is an answer. It may appear radical but its not really, the Romans and Victorians built huge numbers of such structures, as did the Americans and the Japanese even have one street in Tokyo with a motorway running at first floor along its length with shops underneath and you're totally unaware its there. Its all a question of design isn't it?
