Winter Road Gritting


Somerset Highways have produced a leaflet

 “Your Guide to Winter Service in Somerset 2013/2014”. 

This leaflet outlines the county policy on salting routes, describes what they can and cannot do and what You the public can do to assist including advice on the clearance of snow from pavements.  It also contains a map showing the Pre Salting Network in Somerset and the criteria that was used to develop this network.  This also indicates that the majority of roads will not receive treatment and that we all, as drivers, have responsibility for our own safety.

A copy of the leaflet is available to download from the council information page and if you are a "tweeter" you can also get real time updates from "gritter twitter" @somersetgritter
