RESULTS are still yet to be published 18 months after a traffic survey was conducted in Evesham.

Worcestershire County Council forked out £100,000 in a bid to solve the town's long-standing traffic issues but residents are still awaiting answers.

In total, 19 ideas are being discussed with plans that appear to work within the model to be announced in the next few months.

Councillor Ken Pollock, cabinet member with responsibility for economy and infrastructure, said: "We are committed to tackling congestion across the county and we recognise the frustration that residents in and around Evesham face on a daily basis.

"Worcestershire County Council is working on plans to address the traffic issues in Evesham. We are currently assessing various options that arose in part from our consultations with local people and will be modelling those that appear to offer the greatest improvements.

"At a recent meeting with representatives from a large number of our partner organisations, the various possible solutions for Evesham were outlined and we hope to be able to share plans to implement the most promising in the near future."

Cllr Pollock said last October that the survey would take more than a year to start producing results.

He added that he hoped that changes would be implemented in 2019.

Once Evesham's traffic model is complete it will be used to test a number of different scenarios or options, each intended to improve Evesham's transport situation both in the near future and in view of the town's forecast growth.

Information and data that is found will be tested with the traffic model in an attempt to work out how proposed changes might affect traffic.
