Residents encouraged to share views on travel habits

Residents are being encouraged to share their views on travel habits as plans to improve how people travel across Hull continues this week.

Hull City Council has launched the second stage of its ongoing transport survey, and are now asking people to share information on how far they travel, the routes they prefer to use and what would support them to walk and cycle more.

The second phase will also aim to understand how travel habits have changed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The findings will form part of a wider engagement project designed to help plan the future of transport and roads in Hull.

Councillor Dean Kirk, portfolio holder for transportation, roads and highways, said: “The first stage of the survey covered on a wide-scope of topics from congestion to different modes of travelling, including public transport.

“Naturally, we had a huge response to this. And preliminary results show that the biggest issue by far on Hull’s roads is congestion, with some of the suggested solutions including improvements to public transport and developing alternative transport methods.

“These results will help shape how we prioritise and plan future transport projects, whilst the results of the second stage of the consultation will focus around working towards developing more sustainable transport options.”

The survey will run until Monday 4 October.
