The strategic road network, managed by National Highways (formerly Highways England), stretches over 4,300 miles and represents the core our of national transport system and our major roads.

This includes the 670-mile network of motorways and A roads that sit at the heart of the transport network in Yorkshire.

The organisation has created an online tool to help inform the government’s decisions on future road investment.

National Highways wants your views

As well as looking for public feedback, National Highways will be consulting local government and transport authorities, as well as other interested parties. 

Elliot Shaw, Executive Director, Strategy and Planning, said: "At National Highways we are constantly challenging ourselves to seek out ways to improve the experience of those who use our roads and the communities who live nearby.

“The new easy-to-use online tool provides everyone from commuters, professional road users, nearby residents and community groups to comment.  

“I urge you to provide feedback on what is important to you – a specific location on England’s motorways or major A roads, a longer route or general feedback about our road network. This is your opportunity to help inform the long-term vision for the future of our roads.”  

The online tool is open for feedback until November 30.
