Central Bedfordshire Council news and press releases

What do you think of the roads across Central Bedfordshire?

Wednesday, 13 November 2019

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

We're just one of over 100 local authorities to sign up to the National Highways and Transport Public (NHT) Satisfaction Survey. The standardised survey that will ask 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 and gritting as well as looking at traffic congestion, road safety and accessibility.

The survey is open until 31 January.

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

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 the Spring 2020.
