Information about snow priorities

Some of the information in Tuesday's briefing for councillors may be helpful to know as you contemplate the condition of your streets and pavements.

All category 1 and category 2 priority routes were treated on Monday.  Due to continuing snowfalls it was necessary to revert back to category 1 routes.

On Tuesday, all category 1 routes were treated and work began on category 2 routes.

Category 1 routes are important principal roads and major bus routes, roads to hospitals, ambulance depots and fire stations.  Category 2 routes are all other main roads and local distributor roads.

And finally for this morning - salt. Between last Friday (26th November) and Monday night (29th), the Council used 1802 tonnes of salt.  A further 1001 tonnes had been used since the start of winter maintenance.  

As at early morning on 30th there was a supply in hand of 5374 tonnes.
