The most congested roads of London and the amounts they cost drivers are named

Traveling around London can cause considerable stress during rush hour, not to mention the situation when you get to one of the notorious hot spots of traffic in the capital.

For ten consecutive years the city was called the worst in the United Kingdom by the number of traffic jams. It is believed that during the year, Londoners sit on the road on average 74 hours per year. And now for experienced travelers who want to avoid the worst areas of the city, the new report highlights detailed information on those roads where drivers spend the longest amount of time in traffic jams.

The company INRIX conducted a study, analyzing more than 1,300 cities around the world. It found that traffic jams in London cost the drivers an average of £2,430, - given the lost time and fuel each year. And congestion in the capital as a whole costs the city a colossal amount - £9.5 billion annually.

According to a report published this week, the worst section of the road in the capital is North Circular between Chiswick Roundabout and Hangar Lane. It was estimated that in 2017, standing in traffic jams, drivers spent here a total of 56 hours.

According to the degree of congestion, this road was followed by A23, between Kennington Park and Norbury Station. Last year, drivers spent here waiting for a total of 50 hours. Economist INRIX Dr. Graham Cookson urged the government to consider new ways to reduce traffic on the roads of the UK. "In combination with rising travel prices, the cost of congestion is striking - it absorbs billions from the economy and affects both business and individuals," - he said.

"Since the Office of National Statistics has provided information indicating more cars than ever before, we need to consider innovative approaches to solving this problem."

The UK is among the ten most congested countries in the world and ranks third in Europe after Russia and Turkey. After London, the most congested cities in the UK were named Manchester, Birmingham, Luton and Edinburgh.
