Rural Traffic increases by 42% since 2002
|Have your say on the future of travel & transport within around a fifteen- mile radius of Lincoln!
In our rural areas, traffic has increased by 42% in 15 years since 2002. By contrast, in urban areas, the increase in only 6%, so I guess it must have been pretty much as congestion maximum all along. 37,000 more houses are in the Conservative/Labour-led “Local plan”. Too many, I believe, not matched by jobs, facilities nor even road maintenance. The frightening traffic projection is for a further 35% increase in peak flows by 2036.
Use of buses went down with the reductions in service and use of bicycles is down too. Light goods vehicles are up with the click, collect culture.
