The M23 has been rated the second worst motorway in England in Transport Focus research covering the year to March 2020.

In the 2019/20 Strategic Roads User Survey the motorway had the second lowest overall satisfaction with just 64 per cent, only a percentage higher than the worst voted motorway the M20.

This is the second year of the independent watchdog’s new survey looking at the views of over 8000 road users about their last journey on a motorway or major ‘A’ road managed by Highways England.

The M11 was rated the best overall with an overall satisfaction of 92 per cent.

England’s Motorways and how they scored:

Motorways Score (%)
M1192
M4091
M6189
M388
A1 (M)87
M5686
M6583
M6283
M682
M182
M582
M2575
M2774
M470
M2364
M2063

Transport Focus chief executive Anthony Smith said:

“In the 12 months before the coronavirus lockdown, more than three out of four drivers were satisfied with their journey on England’s motorways and major ‘A’ roads – but some roads score much better than others.

“As drivers return to the roads it is vital that management of roadworks is looked at. With just 68 per cent of drivers satisfied this is clearly an area for Highways England to keep focussing on.

“Our research shows that if you’re happy with journey time, you’ll be happy with your journey overall. That’s an important message for Highways England as traffic starts to get back to pre-lockdown levels.”

The Strategic Roads User Survey became the formal measure of satisfaction among users of Highways England’s roads in April 2020 as part of the Government’s second Road Investment Strategy.
