Government responds to M25's 12 hour-long rush hour: 'We are investing £15bn on upgrading roads'

The rush hour can last a long time on the M25

A new report commissioned for the Government has found that the 'rush hour' for drivers using the M25 can actually last from 6am to 6pm.

The finding is a surprising one to many, but some transport campaigners say that people who use the M25 already know that there is a lot of traffic on the route.

The Department for Transport says that it is spending a lot of money on improving the south's major routes.

“We are investing £15 billion up to 2020 delivering upgrades to motorways and major A-roads.

“We continue to work on ways to cut congestion and improve journey times on the M25, connecting people with jobs, leisure and culture venues in the area – and providing an important boost to the UK economy.”
