Ms. Gordon

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what are the traffic counts for(a) cars and (b) lorries on the A13 from Burdett road junction to the Canning Town flyover in each year since 1979.

Mr. Chope

The available estimates are as follows:

Annual average daily flows
1982 1988
All vehicles 36,000 45,000
Cars and taxis 23,000 31,000
Light goods vehicles 3,300 4,600
Heavy goods vehicles1 6,600 6,300
1 Goods vehicles with an unladen weight of 1.5 tonnes or more.

These figures are based on 12-hour counts on a single day and are thus subject to sampling error.
