Drive time…big regional variation in average A road speed - News

Motorists in England face a big regional variation in average A road speed

  • Average A road speed in East of England tops 30mph while in London it is below 15mph
  • Relieve pent-up motoring stress by driving a supercar safely on a race circuit, advises TrackDays.co.uk!
  • Motorists in England face a big regional variation in average ‘A’ road speed reports TrackDays.co.uk, a leading driving experience provider.


Its analysis of the latest figures from the Department for Transport for regions in England reveal that the average ‘A’ road speed in the East of England tops 30mph, 30.9mph to be precise, making it the only English region to do so.


However, it was closely followed by the North East of England with an average ‘A’ road speed of 29.3mph and the East Midlands with 29.1mph.


Dan Jones, operations manager at TrackDays.co.uk, said: “Official data suggests the drivers in the East of England have some of the fastest journey times on the A roads in their region.


“In fact, it is regions in eastern England overall, including the North East and East Midlands, where drivers appear to have A roads with a faster average speed.”


Unsurprisingly it is beleaguered motorists in London that appear to normally have the slowest car journeys, with an average ‘A’ road speed of 14.7mph.


Away from London and motorists in the North West of England appear to face a slower daily road journey, with an average ‘A’ road speed at 23mph.


Dan added: “The average ‘A’ road speed in England is quite contrasting, being more than double in difference at its most extreme.


“For those motorists who face a daily grind on the roads, particularly Londoners, then there is an alternative to relieve some of that pent-up stress, taking a supercar for a spin on a race circuit.


“Many of these prestige marques are capable of reaching around 200mph, but most importantly these driving experiences take place in a safe and controlled environment.”
