Our teams have been hard at work this week preparing for the start of the Winter Maintenance Programme. The programme which officially starts on 7th November 2022 will run for a 21 week period with teams covering 7 routes of identified roads across the city!
In addition to the gritting wagons, we also have quad bike drivers carrying out de-icing throughout the city centre. 4500 tonnes of grit salt is at the ready in preparation for a cold winter ahead.
This year’s programme sees new staff from across all our services join the programme!
