Transport survey targets thousands of homes

Have your say

HIGHWAYS bosses in Doncaster have signed up for a survey which will allow roads and transport services in the borough to be compared with other areas.

Doncaster is one of nearly 70 local authorities to sign up for the scheme, called the National Highways and Transport Public Satisfaction survey.

There will be a standardised poll asking members of the public exactly the same questions.

The survey enables local authorities to compare results, share in best practice, and identify opportunities to work together in the future.

The questionnaire will be sent to a minimum random sample of 4,500 Doncaster residents between June and July with local and national results expected to be published later in the summer.

Since the survey is based on a sample, residents who receive a copy are being urged to take part.

A Doncaster Council spokesman said: “The results will enable us to find out what people in this area think about these important services.”

It is believed to be the first survey of its kind.
