RESIDENTS will get the chance to rate their roads and transport services in a survey.

Around 4,500 city residents, who will be picked at random, will get to rate Portsmouth City Council’s performance on issues such as the quality of roads, pavements and bus services.

The council joins around 70 other authorities who have signed up to the National Highways and Transport Public Satisfaction survey.

The survey aims to compare results, share best practice and identify opportunities for councils to work together.

Peter Radford, chairman of the survey’s steering group, said the information will not be used to create a league table.

He said: ‘There are clear benefits to conducting a public survey in this way.

‘It enables people to identify areas of best practice and spot trends.’
