Highway maintenance survey - tell us what you think of our roads

NHT Public Satisfaction Survey on Highway Maintenance

What do you think of the roads and transport across Central Bedfordshire?

An online survey has been opened for Central Bedfordshire residents to share their views on road maintenance in order to inform the council’s future planning.

We are one of over 100 local authorities to sign up to the National Highways and Transport Public (NHT) Satisfaction Survey. The standardised survey that asks members of the public exactly the same questions, whether they live in Central Bedfordshire, Edinburgh or London. Participating councils can then compare results and share best practice.

The online survey is open to all Central Bedfordshire residents and covers views about highways maintenance including:

  • roads and pavements
  • potholes
  • street lighting
  • drain clearance
  • gritting
  • traffic congestion
  • road safety
  • accessibility

There are real benefits to conducting a public survey like this as it will enable the council to find out what residents think about the highways maintenance services and discover which services they think should be prioritised and improved upon.

The closing date of the survey is 31 January, 2020.

A paper version of the questionnaire was sent to a minimum random sample of at least 3,000 Central Bedfordshire residents earlier this year, with local and national results to be published in the new year.  The results of the paper survey and online survey will be combined, and results published in spring 2020.
