A NEW tool has been launched allowing motorists to report issues with and improvements to the road system in and around Cheshire West and Chester.

National Highways, formerly Highways England, is seeking the views of road users and those who live near motorways and major A roads to give their views on where investment is needed the most.  

The strategic road network managed by the agency stretches more than 4,300 miles, 530 of which is in the north west.

The online tool has been developed as part of its engagement process for Route Strategies, which is one activity used to inform the Government’s decisions on future road investment.

As well as capturing public feedback, National Highways will be consulting local government, transport authorities and other interested parties. 

Elliot Shaw, the agency’s executive director of strategy and planning, said: “At National Highways, we are constantly challenging ourselves to seek out ways to improve the experience of those who use our roads and the communities who live nearby.  

“The new easy-to-use online tool provides everyone from commuters, professional road users, nearby residents and community groups with the chance to comment.  

“I urge you to provide feedback on what is important to you – a specific location on England’s motorways or major A roads, a longer route or general feedback about our road network.

“This is your opportunity to help inform the long-term vision for the future of our roads.”  

The online tool is open for feedback until November 30, and can be found at routestrategies.highwaysengland.co.uk
