Road travel is taking longer each year in the UK. This has been true for the last four years. Travel times have increased by 4% in the last two years. Applying the principle finding of the Eddington Report 2006, this change over the last two years will cost the UK economy an additional £2bn per year going forward even without further deterioration. Additional travel times are matched by a greater unreliability of travel times.
Knowing demand and road capacity, can we predict travel times?
We will look briefly at previous partial solutions and the abundance of motorway data in the UK. Can we make a breakthrough to achieve real-time predictions?
