Traffic Congestion is a problem associated with road networks that occurs as use increases, and is characterised by slower speeds, longer trip times, and increased queueing.
The City of Whittlesea Annual Household Survey4 consistently finds that traffic congestion is the no.1 concern of its residents, with 1 in 3 respondent identifying it as a major issue for them. 1 in 4 residents across Melbourne are similarly concerned with the level of traffic congestion in their areas.

Given the level of concern about traffic congestion in many metropolitan councils, there is definite merit in making traffic congestion a service level measure within Road Asset Management Plans.
