Local residents are being asked for their views on Knowsley’s highways and transport services. The council is requesting feedback on areas such as the condition of roads and footpaths, and the quality of cycling facilities and bus services.
The National Highway and Transport Survey will be sent to a random sample of at least 3,300 of Knowsley’s residents from 19 June.
Since the survey is based on a sample, residents that receive a copy are being urged to take part. If you receive the questionnaire, you can complete the survey online if you prefer; a short URL link will be printed on the front of the questionnaire. It will take around 20 minutes to complete.
Knowsley is one of 112 Local Authorities who has signed up to the standardised survey and answers will be compared with the views of other members of the public across England and Scotland.
Local and national results to be published in mid-October 2017. The results will allow the council to assess how Knowsley’s highways and transport services are performing and understand what improvements should be made.
Cllr Graham Morgan, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, said:
This survey is an excellent way to be a voice for Knowsley and let the council know what you think is working and what is not. If you receive one of the surveys, I urge you to complete it to help the council improve its highways and transport services for the benefit of all Knowsley residents. Receiving responses from as many people as possible will mean the council will be able to prioritise the improvements and changes that local people really want to see.”
