News: ‘No end in sight’ for traffic jams in Yorkshire cities

Traffic jams in Yorkshire cities are not getting any better – and in many British cities they are getting worse, a survey has revealed. In the worst-congested cities, evening rush-hour journeys are taking more than 70 per cent longer than they would in free-flowing traffic, the poll by traffic information company TomTom found.

Compared with 2013, congestion in 2014 was worse in 14 of the UK’s 17 biggest cities, with Bristol the only destination where jams had eased slightly. In Leeds, Bradford and Sheffield, congestion levels were about the same in 2014 as in 2013. Congestion levels had worsened over the past year in London, Brighton and Hove, Nottingham, Leicester, Birmingham, Portsmouth, Cardiff, Belfast, Edinburgh, Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Glasgow and Southampton.”
