Answered By: 
The Mayor

As part of the transformation of Oxford Street in December 2018, Transport for London (TfL) is proposing some modest improvements for cyclists which include new advanced stop lines, a new toucan crossing and several contra flow cycle lanes so cyclists can better navigate through the area.

TfL is planning to deliver further improvements in 2019, and intends to consult on these proposals next year.
