Grit bins will normally only be provided at problem sites on minor roads, which are not on a salting route or where there is a particular hazard and the road in question is treated at a late stage in the gritting cycle.
We provide a winter maintenance service which will permit the safe movement of traffic on priority roads at all times and keep delays and accidents to a minimum.
We use the most accurate weather forecasts available to help us predict when and where the worst weather will occur between October and April.
Despite our best efforts, winter weather can still make roads treacherous and there is no guarantee that roads will always be completely free of ice and snow. The key to safer driving this winter is to make sure you and your vehicle are fully prepared and to make sure you always drive with due care for the weather and condition of the roads.
