Bucks is busiest M25 stretch

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

FOR any­one who uses the M25 in Bucks, this will not come as much of a sur­prise.

Data boffins have cal­cu­lated that the west­ern part of the M25, in­clud­ing Buck­ing­hamshire, is the busiest stretch of mo­tor­way in Bri­tain.

Our stretch of the M25 had an av­er­age of 161,000 ve­hi­cles per day pass­ing through, from the junc­tion with the A1 mo­tor­way to the M23 junc­tion at Mer­stham.

The junc­tions in be­tween serve much of Sur­rey, west Lon­don, Buck­ing­hamshire and Hert­ford­shire. This was a 2.5 per cent traf­fic in­crease com­pared to the year be­fore.

It was the high­est av­er­age daily traf­fic fig­ure in data go­ing back to 2002. That was the fourth year in a row that traf­fic on the west­ern side of the M25 has gone up.

It equated to an ex­tra 19,000 ve­hi­cles on this stretch of the mo­tor­way in 2014 com­pared to 2004.

The west­ern end of the or­bital mo­tor­way was once again the busiest stretch by some dis­tance in Bri­tain.
