These figures published by the DfT show a small reduction in delays on the Strategic Road Network (SRN) in the year ending June 2017.

The figures show that between July 2016 and June 2017 the ‘average delay’ on the SRN decreased by 0.1 seconds per vehicle per mile (1.5%), and is now estimated to be 8.9 seconds per vehicle per mile compared to ‘free flow’.

The average vehicle speed also rose slightly by 0.5%, up to 59.5mph.

However, the figures are not all positive, with average delays on local ‘A’ roads increasing by 1.0 seconds per vehicle per mile (2.2%); while average speeds on local ‘A’ roads fell slightly, down 0.5% to 25.2 mph.
