Buckinghamshire County Council is seeking the opinions of residents on the county's road system in a new online survey that will provide information that will inform the council's strategic highways planning.
This online survey is open to all residents, and is in addition to the annual National Highways and Transportation (NHT) survey which was sent to 3,300 randomly selected households in Buckinghamshire during June.
Through this survey, BCC will be taking a deeper look at two of the key NHT questions which concern 'Road Condition' and 'Road Congestion'. The opinions collected through this survey will be used to supplement the information obtained via the NHT.
Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Transportation Mark Shaw said: "when we look at the combined results of these two surveys, we can really start to build a picture of how the public views and rates our services. This will assist both Buckinghamshire County Council with transport planning and Transport for Buckinghamshire - the strategic highway maintenance arm of the organisation - with advising us on where the roads budget is best spent each year.
"We really value the views of our residents, and this additional questionnaire will give us a better understanding of any issues respondents are experiencing with road condition and road congestion."
The survey will remain open to the residents of Buckinghamshire until 30 September 2019. It takes under five minutes to complete and is open to all residents even if they have responded to the initial NHT survey received last month. The results will be made available on the BCC website in the autumn this year.
