Oops, DfT's dire cycle usage stats were wrong

In its latest traffic level bulletin, the Department of Transport has had to admit that far from dropping by 11 percent "the estimates of pedal cycle traffic" has grown by five percent. This is a very important revision, bolstering the cause of cycling in the UK.

Government statisticians have revisited their traffic stats for the period 1993 to 2001 and have revised the amount of cycling estimated to have taken place in the UK.

The revised stats can be found in Traffic in Great Britain – 1st Quarter 2003.

Traffic on major roads in urban areas fell by 2 per cent from the first quarter of 2002 to the first quarter of 2003, partly reflecting the introduction of the congestion charge for motorists in Central London.
