Road users urged to complete national independent survey

Have your say

DRIVERS and pedestrians are being asked their views on the county’s roads.

It comes as an independent survey has been launched to compare people’s views on roads nationally.

The survey will ask about conditions of roads and footpaths, about street lights and more.

Councillor Rob Humby, executive member for environment and transport at Hampshire County Council, is encouraging people to join in the National Highways and Transport Public Satisfaction survey.

He said: ‘Good highways and transport infrastructure is a key priority for us.

‘We know how important it is for Hampshire’s economic prosperity and for the people who live and work here to have a safe and reliable transport network.

‘This survey provides us with a sound benchmark as to how we’re doing, and we appreciate the time taken by Hampshire residents to complete it, and let us know what they think.

‘Hampshire’s location in the south, with an airport, two ports, and connections to major road and rail connections to London and the rest of the country, places particular importance 
on transport infrastructure, and it is crucial that these vital network links 
across Hampshire are managed well.

​‘The results of this survey will help inform the way we carry out our duties to maintain and improve transport across the county.’

The questionnaire will be sent to a minimum random sample of at least 3,300 residents from June 27, with a reminder in October.
