TomTom Index: Genoa’s traffic too high

Genoa - TomTom’s recently launched Traffic Index showed that Genoa has a relatively high traffic congestion score compared with other large sea ports

Genoa - TomTom’s recently launched Traffic Index showed that Genoa has a relatively high traffic congestion score compared with other large sea ports. On average, a journey during rush hour in the Genoa region takes 31 percent longer because of traffic congestion. This is higher than Valencia (19%), Trieste (20%), Rotterdam (21%) and Barcelona (29%).

The highest congestion in Genoa are the morning and evening rush hours. A journey then takes an average 56 percent longer because of traffic congestion. In Valencia, the largest port in the Mediterranean, morning and evening peaks take on average a 33% longer time.

Another conclusion from TomTom’s global research is that congestion around Genoa mainly stems from non-motorway roads: 36 percent. The delays on motorways are lower than expected: 16%. In Antwerp and Hamburg they reach respectively a 32 and 29 percent additional journey time.
