Frideswide Square, Oxford
16th December 2015
The transformed Frideswide Square in Oxford was officially completed by Oxfordshire County Council on 16th December 2015.
The new square creates an entry point into the west of Oxford, and an important lobby to Oxford railway Station. It also serves as a frontage for the Said Business School, the Royal Hotel, and many other buildings such as the former Frank Cooper Jam Factory.
The new arrangement removes the need for traffic signals and allows for low-speed, free-flowing movement, whilst coping with over 37,000 vehicles and 20,000 pedestrian crossings a day. The revitalised square is intended to serve a pivotal function in the regeneration of Oxpens Road and Oxford's West End.
