A new survey has found that Norfolk County Council is ranked third of 28 similar councils for residents' satisfaction with highways and transport services - but what do you think?

The study, by Ipsos Mori, is based on feedback from nearly 3,300 residents in the county.

It asked for comments about the area's traffic management, condition of highways, local bus services, street lighting, road safety education, and satisfaction with public rights of way.

Results from Norfolk were then compared with responses to areas also governed by county councils or large unitary authorities - with Norfolk placed third overall for satisfaction.

It comes despite the council recently coming under fire for issues caused by the developments of the Northern Distributor Road (NDR) and Postwick Hub junction.

Martin Wilby, chairman of the environment, transport and development committee, said: 'It's rare that we are able to directly compare opinions about our work with similar councils elsewhere in the country so it heartening to hear that we rank so highly.'
