WHAT DO LOCAL AUTHORITY POLITICIANS THINK ABOUT TRANSPORT POLICY. FINDINGS FROM A NATIONWIDE SURVEY CONDUCTED IN SPRING 2000

This report presents the findings of a questionnaire-based survey of local authority politicians across Great Britain (excluding London and the Passenger Transport Authorities) who have responsibility for transport. Questions included spending priorities, attitudes to new road construction, road pricing and workplace parking charges; views about which policies commanded the most and least favourable public support and expectations of future trends in travel patterns and problems such as congestion. Of 170 authorities to which forms were sent, replies were received from 128, a response rate of 75%.
