Wrocław Found To Have Poland’s Slowest Moving Traffic


Research has once again concluded that Wrocław has the worst traffic in Poland. 

A study recently carried out by yanosik.pl, which measured average speeds on city centre streets in 10 polish cities between 07.00 and 18.00, found Wrocław's traffic to have an average speed of 39.3km per hour this summer – the slowest in Poland.

If that sounds bad, things were far worse in spring, when extra school and university traffic resulted in average speeds of 35.4km per hour. 

By comparison, Warsaw, which is often considered to have bad traffic, saw its traffic move at average of 39.7km per hour this summer.

Back in 2015 a similar study found Wrocław's October traffic to be moving at just 33km per hour, which again was the slowest in Poland at the time.

The figures indicate just how crucial Wrocław's future public transport plans are for the city. It is hoped that new trams and tramlines, as well as a possible urban rail network, could convince some drivers to leave their vehicles at home.
