Road User Voice May 2016: What do pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders want from Highways England’s roads?
Cyclists, pedestrians and horseriders are key users of Highways England’s network. With development of our Strategic Roads User Survey (SRUS) underway we’ve started to explore satisfaction among other key groups of road users. Earlier this month Transport Focus invited organisations representing these users to a discussion to kick-off our thinking. Those attending included Living Streets, Sustrans, Cycling UK, and Ramblers Association.
Among lots of really interesting discussion, several common issues started to emerge which including the distinction between travelling along a trunk road (cyclists, pedestrians and horse riders not being permitted on motorways of course) and the need to cross parts of the Strategic Road Network.
We’re now reflecting on all the feedback received and will develop proposals for how the views of these important users can be understood on an ongoing basis
