RAC Foundation – Transport priorities survey

Survey of the public and Future MPs on behalf of the RAC Foundation

Tackling the poor condition of roads and pavements is seen by British adults as the most important transport priority for the next government.

More than half (53%) believe this should be the number one issue for ministers to address after the general election in May. The cost of travelling by train is regarded as the second priority (42%).
