About the road traffic statistics data and reports

All of the statistics published are National Statistics. These statistics were assessed by the UK Statistics Authority and confirmed as a national statistic in February 2013.

Our geographical website allows users to view and download estimated traffic flows on every link of the ‘A’ road and motorway network in Great Britain. The interactive map provides a mapped background to identify traffic flows in specific areas of the country.

DfT road traffic statistics team conducted a review of the traffic estimates for Great Britain. The aim of the review was to ensure robust traffic estimates continue to be produced, seeking innovation and greater value for money in their production while protecting user needs.

A report summarising the review so far and detailing individual projects is available.
