Given the huge importance of Oxford Street to London's economy and international reputation, is it time for you to assume responsibility for the repair, maintenance and management of this road in the same way that the Greater London Authority (GLA) already does for Trafalgar and Parliament squares?


Answer for Oxford Street

Answer for Oxford Street

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Westminster City Council is the highway authority for Oxford Street and their maintenance and management service levels are set out in their Highway Asset Management Plan.  There are no plans to designate Oxford Street a GLA road.

The maintenance of roads, footways and other highway assets around Parliament Square and Trafalgar Square are the responsibility of Westminster City Council, with the squares being managed by the GLA.
