The purpose of the survey is to look at traffic modelling in support of the A417 Missing Link – Air Balloon scheme announced by the government in the Autumn Statement 2014 for the Roads Investment Strategy (RIS).

This will be an opportunity to obtain feedback from the public who regularly use this road.
