Traffic levels rose by 1% in the second quarter of 2000 compared with

the same time last year, provisional estimates show.

There has been little growth in traffic over the past three quarters,

according to seasonally-adjusted figures.

These figures and analyses by vehicle type and road class are

published today in Traffic in Great Britain - 2nd Quarter 2000, which

shows that:

- Car traffic was little changed between the second quarter of

1999 and the same quarter of 2000. Light van traffic rose by 1%,

heavy goods vehicle traffic by 2%.

- Motorway traffic rose by 1% - much lower than the average rate

of increase in recent years - between the second quarter of 1999

and the same quarter of 2000. The level of traffic on other major

roads was virtually unchanged.
