Covid-19 leads to increased home working

During a speech given today by Transport Secretary Grant Shapps, Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Jenny Harries stated that 41% of the workforce are now working from home, compared with 12% a year ago. Dr Harries showed a slide to support this statement (see above). And in a recently published survey commissioned by O2, respondents predicted that the increased level of home working is likely to become permanent. Leeds City Council and Metro need to consider the impact of home working on the A660’s traffic levels and on their plans to alter the A660 to deal with a traffic problem which may no longer exist.
