AbITS Part 2

The orange barriers are back, initially, on Broad Street where they've removed a low mounded wall, and a tree. Soon the workmen will progress to Stert Street to widen the pavements, and narrow the road. This is the second part of the AbITS (Abingdon Integrated Transport Strategy) scheme. The objectives of the scheme included:

* promote safer, more pleasant and more convenient conditions for pedestrians and cyclists

An elderly gentleman was seriously injured yesterday in a road accident in Stert Street. A lorry delivering tarmac to cover this area hit him. (news detail @ Oxford Mail )
