Preparing for a cold winter with our Winter Maintenance Programme

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!
