People who wish to attend the surgery at the South Lakes Foyer in Kendal, don't need to book an appointment.

Roadside interviews have been planned for four days in Kendal.

Cumbria County Council say the surveys will be held over the month of July at a number of spots around the town.

The surveys will involve interviews aimed at gathering data on drivers' journey patterns.

When completed, the surveys will provide high quality information on the journeys made by car and lorry drivers in and around Kendal. The information will help us to gain a better understanding of travel patterns, providing key data for the development and planning of future investment in the local transport system. We hope that the travelling public will co-operate to help us collect the evidence we need to deliver improvements to the highways and transport network.

– Paul Landreth, Cumbria County Council Project Manager

Each spot will operate on one day only with interviews taking two to three minutes.
