Roads scrutinised after 'decline in public satisfaction'

The state of roads in Worcestershire is to be scrutinised after a survey showed public satisfaction had dropped.

A county council panel will discuss how road conditions compare with other authorities at a meeting next month.

The latest Worcestershire Viewpoint Survey in November showed a decline in public satisfaction, although the council said the county's highways had improved over recent years.

Councillors will discuss how highway maintenance spending is prioritised.

They will also investigate why public satisfaction with roads had declined.

The economy, environment and communities overview and scrutiny panel meeting will be held at County Hall on 5 September.
