Highways bosses are launching a major public survey into the state of Doncaster’s roads and its public transport.

The announcement comes at the end a week which has seen plans for a major shake-up in buses in the west of the borough, and the need for serious repairs to a major road.

Stagecoach is changing its Dearne services, and the A60 Tickhill Road is to close for repairs.

Doncaster Council is one of 70 local authorities to sign up to the National Highways and Transport Public Satisfaction survey that will ask members of the public their views.

The questionnaire will be sent to at least 4,500 Doncaster residents. Results are to be published in autumn.

Coun Bill Mordue, cabinet member for highways, said: “Improving our road network will help make Doncaster a better place to live and invest in, which in turn encourages new jobs and economic growth.”
