THE LEVEL of congestion suffered by commuters travelling into London appears to be easing.

The number of people entering central London in the morning rush hour has fallen from about 1.2 million in 1988 to about 969,000 last year, London Transport said. In the same period, the number arriving by Underground fell from 401,000 to 332,000.

The number travelling in by car and cycle was 170,000 - about the same as 1992 but well down on the peak of 236,000 in 1982.
