     TRANSPORT IN GUERNSEY             
                                       
   Guernsey is said to have a greater  
 density of roads than anywhere else in
 the world!                            
   The relatively narrow roads and many
 country lanes persuade most people to 
 buy small cars.                       
   Although Guernsey is far from being

In 2011 the BBC published the survey online and for six months invited updates to the photographs and text to celebrate the 25th anniversary.

Shortly afterwards the website was added to The National Archives’ UK Government Web Archive.
