There are calls for the upgrade of Oxford Street, Paddington to try and get businesses to return to what was one of the high shopping streets of Sydney. One challenge has always been the heavy volumes of traffic. In 1990, it appears that they were faced with a similar dilemma.

Back then there was no Westfield Bondi Junction whereas now they do.

Time too for one council to take control of the whole strip?
