Traffic expected to exceed pre-recession high this year

According to provisional data from the Department for Transport (DfT), traffic on Britain’s roads increased by 2.1 per cent last year, with the volume of van and truck traffic being one of the main contributors.

The new research shows traffic rose to 310.2 billion vehicles miles, up from 303.7 billion vehicle miles in 2013.

If traffic continues to grow at this pace, the research suggests Britain is on course to reach an all-time high this year, surpassing the 2007 record of 314.1 billion miles prior to the economic downturn.
