Ria Chatterjee looks at the impact heavy traffic it's having on London.

Last year we spent around 90 hours stuck in queues on the A4 out of London.
And, it's quite surprising that it's the afternoon when the congestion gets worse - but that's probably because people want to leave work all at the same time rather than stagger journeys in.
Traffic jams in London are getting worse, with each of Britain's top 10 most congested roads in the capital. New research shows a big jump in wasted hours during the London commute, rising from 72 hours in 2012 to 82 hours last year. These are the top ten most congested roads:
- 1) A4, Central London to the M4
- 2) A4, M4 to Central London
- 3) A215, Camberwell to the Croydon turnoff
- 4) A217, Morden to Chelsea
- 5) A1/A1(M), Finchley to Barbican
- 6) A23, Croydon to Westminster Bridge Road
- 7) A205, Catford to Woolwich Ferry
- 8) A41, Central London to M1
- 9) A12, Stratford to M25
- 10) A406, Chiswick Roundabout to Neasden Junction
