Road traffic hits new high but urban volumes flatline

ROAD TRAFFIC

27 May 2016
 

Road traffic volumes in Great Britain hit a record high in 2015, according to figures published by the DfT.

An estimated 316.7 billion miles were driven, nearly 1% more than the previous high set in 2007. The decline in traffic in the late 2000s has been attributed in part to the recession and higher fuel prices.  

Growth was recorded last year in all three of the largest vehicle categories:

• Car traffic grew 1.1% to 247.7 billion vehicle miles, a new record

• Van traffic rose...

+79% more
