There are now over on average 114,000 motor vehicles per day using the M1 between our junctions (J39 to J40). That is over 41 million motor vehicles per year! The figures are not suprising as the figures from 2004 show average daily figures over 100,000 motor vehicles, which is 36 million motor vehicles per year. The data has been taken from the dft site:- https://www.dft.gov.uk/traffic-counts/cp.php?la=Wakefield#16008. Of course these 100,000+ vehicles per day have an impact on pollution levels are our health.
