This report contains findings from 2 waves of quantitative research examining business attitudes and behaviour towards roads in England.
Research was carried out for the Department for Transport via the BDRC Continental Business Opinion Omnibus Survey in June and September 2013.
Over the 2 waves, 849 telephone interviews were made with financial decision-makers in English businesses which have a minimum turnover £50,000.
This report is in 2 parts. Part 1 compares the results from both waves of research. In part 2, data from both waves has been combined to enable more detailed analysis of business road user behaviour.
We have published reports that give details on each wave separately. View:
This research has informed government’s thinking around roads reform and helped to develop the ‘Road investment strategy’.
