ABSTRACT
A report by the Department for Transport, Local Government and the Regions gives the results of a survey of average traffic speeds conducted on the English trunk road network in 2001. The average speed of traffic on trunk roads in England in 2001 was 48.8 miles per hour in the morning peak, 51.3 miles per hour in the evening peak and 53.1 miles per hour during the intervening off-peak period. Average traffic speeds in 2001 were lowest in London and highest in the southwest. In the morning peak period, traffic spent 15 percent of the time at less than 20 miles per hour. Some of the most important changes in speed on trunk roads in England between 1998 and 2001 are also presented. Most regions reflected the overall trend of increasing peak-time traffic speeds with no clear pattern during the off-peak.
