Road users’ priorities for improvement: heavy goods vehicle drivers

This research asked HGV (heavy goods vehicle) drivers to rank their priorities for improvement to England’s motorways and major ‘A’ roads. The results are broken down by annual mileage and vehicle and road type.

‘Quality of road surfaces’ is the aspect that HGV  drivers want to see improved most. ‘Better management of unplanned delays such as accidents and breakdowns’ and ‘better management of roadworks’ are also in their top three priorities.

It follows research earlier in the year which revealed car and van drivers and motorcyclists’ priorities for improvement. ‘Quality of road surfaces’ was also the top priority for them. However, they ranked ‘safer design and upkeep of roads’ (ranked second for car and van drivers and third for motorcyclists) and ‘better behaved drivers’ (ranked third for car and van drivers and second for motorcyclists) within their top three priorities.
