The contents of the Traffic in Great Britain bulletin for the first quarter of 1999, were presented. Traffic levels rose by three percent between the first quarter of 2001 and the same quarter of 2002. The rise partly reflects the impact of the foot and mouth disease on traffic in the first quarter of 2001. It is estimated that the underlying rate of growth continues to be about one percent to 1.5 percent a year. Car traffic levels rose by about three percent comparing the first quarter of 2001 to the same period of 2002. Motorway traffic rose by over three percent over the year to the first quarter, while traffic on non-built-up minor roads was up four percent.
