Snow – latest update

January 6, 2010

From Rob Dickson, Service Director Environment

Gritting was done as planned yesterday evening and subsequently through the night. All major routes are clear with public transport and emergency services reporting no issues at all.

Town Centre and other shopping areas have been gritted and further work is being done now as street cleaning crews come on duty (street cleansing is suspended).

We have grit supplies for at least three weeks of intensive snow (very very unlikely) and up to two months of normal winter conditions.

The weather forecast is for some snow during the day ending in the early evening, we don’t expect that to be heavy. We have grit vehicles on standby to address any issues arising this morning and are likely to grit all routes in the winter maintenance plan this afternoon.
