London crawling: UK capital’s roads are the slowest in the world


According to new research by TomTom, thanks to the introduction of widespread 20mph speed limits, London is now officially the slowest city in the world for drivers.

Journeys of 10km in central London took an average of 37 minutes and 20 seconds last year – one minute more than in 2022 and the longest time among the 387 cities analysed across 55 countries. 

Irish capital Dublin was the second slowest city centre with 10km trips typically taking 29 minutes and 30 seconds. 

It was followed by Toronto, Canada (29 min); Milan, Italy (28 min 50 sec); and Lima, Peru (28 min 30 sec). 

In the UK, Manchester ranked second (23 min 30 sec), followed by Liverpool (22 min 50 sec), Bristol (22 min 40 sec) and Edinburgh (21 min 30 sec). 

Travel times increased last year in 21 of the 25 UK cities analysed.
