A large part of London's Oxford Street could go car-free by 2018.

Several other cities around the world are making similar efforts to turn their centers into pedestrian-only zones.

Around half a mile of London's Oxford Street — from Oxford Circus to Orchard Street — could go car-free by December 2018, under plans by Mayor Sadiq Khan.

If the plans are approved, they would turn a large part of Oxford Street into a pedestrian-only zone, according to the BBC.

The city hopes to commission a 2,625-footlong mural to be painted on the road, along with public art suspended overhead.

Buses would also be re-routed, and cyclists would not be able to ride in the area.
