Road Traffic: A14

Volume 465: debated on Tuesday 23 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what the most recent traffic flow data are for each section of the A14. (159210)

The road can be considered in three lengths; from the M1/M6 motorway interchange to A1 west of Huntingdon, A1 Huntingdon to A11 east of Cambridge, and A11 to Felixstowe.

The latest obtainable figures of traffic flow data are for the year to August 2007. The tables show annual average weekday traffic flows, which is defined as the average of flows for all weekdays (Monday to Friday) within the year.

The tables show for each of these three lengths of the A14: the three busiest links between junctions on each length, the annual average weekday traffic flows for each length, and the highest daily traffic flow over the last quarter for each length. Both directional flows of traffic, eastbound and westbound, are shown.
