Residents asked for views on highways & transport

Published on: Friday, 03-July-2015

Residents’ views on Knowsley’s Highways and Transport services will again be compared with others across England, with the National Highways and Transport Public Satisfaction survey.

Knowsley Council is one of 86 local authorities to sign up to a standardised survey that will ask members of the public exactly the same questions, wherever they live.

The questionnaire has been sent to a minimum random sample of 3,300 Knowsley residents and those that have received a copy are being urged to take part.

Cllr Mike Murphy, Knowsley’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development said: “There are clear benefits to conducting a public survey in this way. As well as providing excellent value for money, it will help us to find out what people think about our highways and transport services and help us to prioritise and improve where we need to.

“At a time when we are still facing financial cuts, this will allow us to focus on what is important to residents and to deliver this in the most efficient way.

“I would encourage any resident who has received a questionnaire to complete it and let us have their views.”

The survey, which is being run for the eighth year, is the largest collaboration between Local Authorities offering the opportunity to compare results, share in best practice and identify further opportunities to work together in the future. Local and national results will be published in early October.
