City roads may become 20mph zones
Some roads in Oxford may become 20mph zones in the New Year.

Plans for the reduced limits have been put forward for a number of routes in the Summertown area of the city, which links Woodstock Road with Banbury Road.

The 20mph scheme includes London Road, where proposals for a bus lane have also been put forward.

The idea is part of a 2.8m plan to encourage more people onto buses and to cut congestion. A decision is due at a county council meeting on Thursday.
