Have your say on the highway – Gloucestershire County Council

Gloucestershire residents are being asked for their views on all things highways this week after a new survey was launched. The survey asks residents for their views on road condition, grass verges, pavements, street lighting, road signs and more.

Gloucestershire County Council want more detail on what residents think at a local level. They’re also offering anyone who completes the survey the opportunity to take part in further focus groups to offer more detailed feedback.
