More than 20 U.K. cities account for more than half of all new vehicle journeys, according to new research.
The U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, or OCHA, released its annual Road to Recovery report Thursday that shows cities in the U.k. are leading the way.
The United Kingdom has been one of the most active drivers of new vehicle trips, with nearly 80 percent of new journeys being made by motor vehicles.
London, the U, and Dublin are the three leading cities with the highest share of all vehicle journeys.
While London is home to a vast array of high-tech developments, such as a new railway station and London’s newly built subway, it also has a high percentage of new-vehicle journeys that take place by public transport.
The report said that for the period from 2016 to 2019, London made an average of 2.2 million new vehicle commutes a year, compared to an average 2.4 million commutes in the rest of the U in the same period.
Dublin, the largest city in Ireland, has been leading the UK for a long time.
It is the second most populous city in Europe after London.
Dublins population reached almost 6 million people in 2020, compared with 2.3 million in 2020 in London.
Dublin is now the fourth largest city by area with a population of 6.5 million people, up from 5.5 in 2020.
The OCHA study also showed that the United Kingdom was the leading city in the European Union for new vehicle use in 2020 with a 3.6 million total vehicle commute.
Dublans share of new road vehicle journeys is up to 26 percent compared to 2016, with the share in London at 8 percent, followed by Dublin at 7.5 percent, and London at 6.2 percent.
The U.s. has a smaller share at 2.1 percent.
While the U-K.
was a leader in new vehicle travel, London’s share increased to 16 percent, Dublin’s to 15 percent and the UK’s share of the new road transport pie dropped from 23 percent in 2016 to 22 percent in 2020 according to the OCHA report.
The new OCHA findings were based on data from OCHA’s Road to Resilience project, a partnership between the United Nations and U.R.E. and the European Transport Safety Authority.
