Unite has been asked to assist in carrying out some research on behalf of the Highways Agency England into the opinions of professional drivers on the strategic road network. Transport Focus are the independent watchdog with responsibility to report to government on the views of those using motorways and major A roads in England. Transport Focus are running an online survey to look at what road users consider are the priorities for improvement – and they are interested in your views. The survey should not take too long to complete. The results will be published but your responses will remain confidential. The priorities that come out of the research will be used by Transport Focus to work with the Highways England (previously the Highways Agency)to develop the improvements drivers want to see.
The link to the survey is http://tinyurl.com/hgvsurvey2 and all of the responses from this link will be identified as coming from Unite. It is vital therefore that we get as many drivers as possible to complete the survey and I would request that you forward this email to all of your contacts as a matter of urgency.
