Have your say on highways and transport

PUBLISHED: 15:50 14 July 2011

New public satisfaction survey to be released to find out what residents think of the county’s roads and transport services.

East Devon residents are being asked for their views on the county’s highways and transport services.

Devon County Council is one of 70 local authorities taking part in the national highways and transport public satisfaction survey.

The survey covers all aspects of local highway and transport services, from the condition of roads to the quality of local bus services.

Councillor Stuart Hughes, Devon County Council cabinet member for highways and transportation, said: “The county council is committed to improving Devon’s roads and access to transport options, and this definitive survey will enable us to understand and respond to the views of local people.

“That is why the feedback is so important, and it also enables us to identify where improvements can be made and where there may be opportunities to work with other authorities in future.

It is organised by the National Highways and Transport Network (NHT) and the South West Highways Service Improvement Group.

The questionnaire will be sent to a minimum random sample of 4,500 residents and results are expected to be published later in the year.
