Order of road and footpath snow clearing.
In the worst weather we cannot guarantee that every road will be kept open at all times as we do not have the resources to make this possible. During the worst weather we will concentrate our efforts on a defined network of principal roads which are tackled in the following order:
However, priorities will be determined by prevailing conditions.
We have an approved footpath network which is treated when ice is forecast to be present after noon. This network covers locations where there are the greatest number of pedestrians such as pedestrianised shopping areas. This service is subject to resources being available as our priority is the precautionary road network.
