County council agrees to look into highways satisfaction levels

Published
30.06.2016

At today's full council, members unanimously agreed to further analysis of satisfaction levels with highways in Gloucestershire.

A motion proposed by Cllr Paul Hodgkinson (leader of the Liberal Democrat Group) requested that:

"... the Environment and Community Scrutiny Committee conducts a detailed analysis of these satisfaction levels with the county highways and reports back for member discussion at the Full Council meeting on 7th December 2016."

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways, said: "The vast majority of the highways statistics published today show consistent improvement in the condition of Gloucestershire roads. This includes the speed of repairs, as well as a reduction in the backlog of work needed.

"Whilst public opinion is also above target and improving, more work needs to be done to look at communications with councillors and parish councils.

"I welcome this decision as a useful way of looking at that."

Cllr Paul Hodgkinson, leader of the Liberal Democrat Group, said: "I know that parish and town councils have real concerns over our roads and pavements.

"Let's listen to them now and take the opportunity to improve."

Cllr Lesley Williams, leader of the Labour Group, said: "The public needs to have confidence in their local government to deliver safe roads.

"I believe we can change that."
