This Statistical Release presents provisional information about congestion on local authority managed ‘A’ roads between April and June 2012.
- Provisional data for 2012 shows that average speeds during the weekday morning peak on locally managed ‘A’ roads in England were slower in April (4.4 per cent), stable in May (up 0.2 per cent) and slightly slower in June (0.6 per cent) compared to the same months in 2011.
- The decreases in April and June were likely to have been influenced by the substantial amount of rainfall experienced in those months. April 2012 was the wettest April in England and June 2012 the second wettest June since records began in 1910.
- Annual average ‘weekday morning peak’ speeds showed an upward trend between the years ending December 2010 and February 2012. Other than a decrease in average speeds in the year ending April 2012, average speeds have been fairly static since.
