CSS seeks public's view of roads

THE COUNTY Surveyors' Society has commissioned poll specialist Mori to ask the public about its views on the state of the nation's roads next month.

It is hoped that the survey will discover not only the public's perception of road congestion, the state of the road system and road maintenance, but also determine where it believes the Government should direct future transport spending.

Dorset County Council's Guy Spencer, who is co-ordinating the project for CSS, said: 'This isn't a question of lobbying but of presenting factual information about congestion and road maintenance and circulating it widely.'

The results, due next month, will show public perception by geographical area. They will be presented to the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions to help show which highway projects being bid for by local authorities are needed most.
