Getting salted for winter forecast

Published Monday, 26 February 2018

Approximately 80 tonnes of salt has been spread on the 200 miles of priority routes across the borough over the course of Sunday night and the early hours of Monday as ice and then snow was predicted

Crews were also salting town centre pavements and other areas of high pedestrian footfall such as on the approaches to schools and outside train stations.  The council’s gritting fleet and snow clearance teams are on standby, ready to clear snow and apply additional salt if needed.  Snow Friends, residents who have pledged to help clear snow from residential pavements, have also been alerted to the probability of snow locally, with further snow forecast for later this week.
