Roads and pavements: what we do

6. Winter roads

  • Publish our plans and procedures for roads to be treated each winter
  • Grit all main roads (over 40% of the county), including at least one road into each large village, when freezing is predicted
  • Use modern precision weather forecasting linked to our own weather stations
  • Use over 50 snow ploughs to open main routes where possible, within 24 hours of heavy snow and other routes as soon as we can
  • Clear snow from town and village centres within the resources available to us
  • Provide information via our website and local radio on road conditions during bad weather.
