Please find below a winter gritting update by ESCC Highways:
I am writing with an update on the weather situation and our actions to be taken on Weds night / Thurs morning:
We will be gritting all primary routes from 7pm this evening, followed by secondary routes. The gritters will then go out again tomorrow morning at 4:00am gritting all primary routes, followed by a further run on primary routes with snow ploughs fitted if necessary. We will then take a view on further action to be taken, based on the road conditions / weather tomorrow morning.
Our maintenance gangs will continue to be deployed filling grit bins and undertaking spot salting of high risk footways and pedestrian areas.
Our duty officers will be available from 5pm today on 0345 60 80 193 to deal with any emergencies and we will be working closely with the emergency services if needed.
