Rate us in survey on road safety action: council

The Queenstown Lakes District Council is keen to find out how the community views council's response, after two major snow events in the past two weeks.

Council transport manager Denis Mander said in a statement on Friday the Wakatipu experienced snow down to lake level and freezing temperatures, generating "challenging road conditions".

"While this is still fresh in people's thoughts, we would like a chance to hear from the community about whether or not expectations were met," Mr Mander said.

It was also an opportunity for the council to ascertain people's preferred way of receiving information on road conditions.

"There are five simple questions in a two-minute survey online to answer, which will help us form a picture of how well we are doing," Mr Mander said.

The survey is available to take now, on the home page of the council website, www.qldc.govt.nz.

Residents and visitors have two weeks to participate.
