Watch: Sadiq Khan explains why Oxford Street isn’t being pedestrianised

James Manning

Not long ago, we sat down with the Mayor of London to discuss some of the biggest challenges facing the city (and his favourite Spice Girls). Our questions were all put forward by Time Out readers, and we’ll be posting Sadiq Khan’s answers one by one.

This week’s questions are about the most famous (and notoriously crowded) street in London, and why it still hasn’t been pedestrianised.

‘Why is Oxford Street not being pedestrianised? It’s awfully slow as it is already.’ @CuddlyMcCuddles via Twitter

‘Why drop the plans to make Oxford Street traffic-free? It’s dangerous because of all the traffic and pollution.’ @GerryCity via Twitter

‘I hope you’re not giving up on your plans to pedestrianise Oxford Street and Regent Street?’ Daniel Wood via Facebook

Over to you, Sadiq…
