This report discusses the general question how and when to inform the public about road planning? The main questions are: (1) Why build a new road? (2) Where to place the road in the terrain? (3) For what reasons has the road been placed in a particular area? (4) What will be the consequences if the plan is carried through? (5) What will be the consequences if no new road is built? Further, it describes how information about road planning is given today according to laws and regulations. Today's information service proves not to be sufficient. The information should be given in such a way that the public easily, as far as possible, will understand all the different aspects of the planned road. It continues with a plan of how and when to give this information. It mentions the useful assistance from public information media and exhibitions, and is followed by a practical description and examples of how to make a plan "go public". The appendix contains a clearly set out description of the consequences of an actual road project. /TRRL/
