A REDUCED-LANE OXFORD ROAD

AND RAT-RUNNING THROUGH YOUR SUBURBS

OXFORD ROAD CLOSURE – JUST A TASTE OF WHAT’S TO COME

Formalised rat-running through Saxonwold and Riviera will soon be a reality if Johannesburg’s Transport department has its way and reduces Oxford Road permanently to only one lane for private vehicles in each direction between Riviera and Glenhove Roads. This will be to allow for the new BRT (Bus Rapid Transport) system to run down the centre of the road. The introduction of the BRT (Bus Rapid Transit System) to the City of Johannesburg will utilize Oxford Road as part of its route from Soweto to Sunninghill.

Diversion routes into Saxonwold and Riviera are the solution, according to the council. This is very short-sighted. I suggest that the city delays the implementation of the BRT in this section, so that property can be expropriated along Oxford Road, to allow for the second lanes to continue existing. There is pandemonium in the suburbs at the moment due to the problems with the sinkholes in Oxford Road – this only a taste of what is to come, for local residents.

COME AND LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!
