ABSTRACT
The results of a survey of traffic speeds in 1999 and 2000 in the main urban areas outside London, England are presented. The average speed across the entire surveyed urban road network was 21.2 miles per hour during peak periods and 25.4 miles per hour during off-peak periods. The highest average speed for both peak and off-peak periods was in Peterborough, out of the 24 areas surveyed. Off-peak speeds were consistently higher than peak speeds. Just over 50 percent was at speeds of less than 20 miles per hour during the morning peak period and just over 40 percent was at speeds less than 20 miles per hour during the morning off-peak period. The proportion of time spent at less than 10 miles per hour during the peak period was greatest in Southampton and least in Peterborough. In the off-peak period, it was greatest in Bristol and least in Peterborough.
