What are the?issues?with the roads you use???How could they be?improved? National Highways has launched an online feedback tool for road users?and?those?who live near to England’s motorways and major A roads to give their views on where investment is needed the most.??
The strategic road network,?managed by National Highways (formerly Highways England),?stretches over 4,300 miles?and represents the core our of national transport system?and our major roads.
As part of this our 530-mile network in the North West stretches from the city of Carlisle to the edges of the Peak District. It’s one of the most diverse areas of motorways and major A-roads in the country to maintain and keep moving.
The region is home to economic powerhouses such as Manchester and Liverpool, major international airports and big shopping centres like the Trafford Centre and Cheshire Oaks. We provide links to some of world’s most successful sports teams and help fans get safely to and from matches every week.?
We also support local tourism, connecting the millions of holiday makers who travel across the country to visit hotspots like the Lake District and Blackpool every year.?
So,?make sure you?have your say?in where you want to see?future?investment?going.?
The?online tool?has been developed as part of our engagement process for Route Strategies,?which is one activity used to inform the government’s decisions on future road investment. As well as capturing public feedback,?we?will be consulting?local government and transport authorities, as well as other interested parties.?
Elliot Shaw, Executive Director, Strategy and Planning, said:???
“At National?Highways?we are constantly challenging ourselves to seek out ways to improve the experience of those who use our roads and the communities who live nearby.??
“The new?easy-to-use?online tool provides?everyone?from?commuters, professional road users,?nearby residents?and?community groups?to?comment.??
“I urge you to provide feedback on what is important to you – a specific location on England’s motorways or major A roads, a longer route or general feedback about our road network. This is your opportunity to help inform the long-term vision for the future of our roads.”??
Together with input from a wide range of other?stakeholders?feedback?will be used to inform recommendations and investment plans going forward for the Department for Transport’s next Road Investment Strategies (RIS3 2025 – 2030).???
The online tool?is?open for feedback?until 30 November 2021.??
