And the most congested city of 2016 is...


A new study has put two of South Africa's biggest Metros on the list of most congested cities of 2016, albeit not as high as most would have expected.

According to INRIX's Global Traffic Scorecard for 2016, Cape Town emerged as the most clogged up city in Africa with commuters spending a total of 49 hours per year stuck in peak hour congestion. As well as jumping from the 53rd to the 33rd most congested city surveyed, the Mother City also jumped one place to settle as 28th on INRIX's Traffic Scorecard Rank for 2016.

Up from 66th in 2015 to 44th, Johannesburg rated as the next congested with 46.8 hours spend in peak time traffic, with the City of Gold falling two place to 33rd on INRIX's Traffic Scorecard Rank. Other South African cities surveyed included Durban (158; 30.2 hours), Pretoria (191; 28.1 hours), Pietermaritzburg (384; 19.8 hours), Port Elizabeth (401; 19.1 hours), East London (437; 17.7 hours), Bloemfontein (470; 16.1 hours) and Vanderbijlpark (1013; 4.9 hours).

Unsparingly, Los Angeles emerged as the most congested city in the world with a total of 104.1 hours, followed by Moscow (91.4 hours), New York (89.4 hours), San Francisco (82.6 hours), Bogota (79.8 hours), Sao Paulo (77.2 hours), London (73.4 hours), Magnitogorsk (71.1 hours), Atlanta (70.8 hours) and Paris (65.3 hours).
