I have recently been notified by County Hall that Leicestershire County Council will shortly be carrying our roadside interview surveys.
The surveys, which will take place on some roads in or nearby to Whitwick and Thringstone will commence on 24th September.
Motorists should be aware that the police will be responsible for stopping traffic at survey sites.
The operation of the surveys will involve stopping a sample of drivers who will be asked a few questions about their journeys; mainly the origin, destination and purpose.
The survey has been designed to minimise disruption but if you are stopped it will take around two minutes to complete.
Unfortunately it isn't possible to tell you where the surveys will take place as bias the results.
It isn't the intention of the County Council to cause disruption however these type of surveys are invaluable in planning future transport investment.
Further surveys will also be carried out in spring and summer next year.
