Traffic level drop nowhere near first lockdown – TTF

The Transport Technology Forum’s latest research into travel patterns in cities, towns and villages based on local authority-sourced data suggests the latest English lockdown triggered traffic levels to fall to 27 per cent below what they were in pre-Covid-19 days in March.

However the analysis of data covering more than a hundred local authority areas also indicates that the fall in travel is at present only down to around half what it was as it was during the first lockdown.

This could be because schools remain open during these latest restrictions.

The report provides an important overview of how public behaviour is changing and what new patterns are being experienced, based on local authority data.  Local authorities can benefit by being able to compare what is happening in their areas with the national picture, allowing local and national comparisons to be drawn.
