MOTORWAY USERS SURVEY

In March 1992, the Department of Transport issued a research specification in respect of motorway provision. Some objectives of this research are to obtain information about: (1) drivers attitudes towards current levels of provision of and within motorways in England; and (2) drivers' requirements and aspirations for improvements in provision. The research was carried out in two phases: (a) initial research into motorway drivers' perceptions and attitudes, using discussion groups and surveys; and (b) quantitative research into the more significant results of the car/van, HGV/PSV driver surveys. This report is arranged in the following chapters: (1) introduction; (2) survey method; (3) the profile of motorway drivers; (4) drivers' attitudes; (5) views on specific elements of provision including lighting; the road surface; management of roadworks; lane capacity and width; traffic signs; (6) priorities analysed by SP (stated preference techniques; and (7) priorities for public expenditure. Appendices include copies of the survey material used.
