Moscow tops ranking of most congested cities in the world

The average driver wasted 61 hours in congestion during 2018 on the stretch of the A406 between the Chiswick Roundabout and Hangar Lane.

The average cost of congestion per Lexington driver is $1,108, which is worse than Dallas, Orlando and Phoenix.

London and Edinburgh are said to be the UK's slowest cities. The commission is also working with five "case study" cities - the Liverpool City Region, West Yorkshire Combined Authority including Leeds and Bradford, Derby, Basildon and Exeter - as they develop their long-term strategies.

Other negative effects of congestion are lower productivity as people are more regularly late to work and increased pollution and accidents.

Away from London, Leeds Road/Saltaire Road from Harrogate Road to Bradford Road in Leeds and the A34 in Birmingham from Highfield Road to Highgate Middleway were the two worst traffic hotspots, with 44 hours wasted in each location past year. Motorists lose an average of 56 and 49 hours respectively on these London roads.
