Winter Road Service

Dear Town/Parish Clerk

Winter Service in Somerset 2017/2018

Please find attached a copy of our leaflet ‘Your Guide to Winter Service in Somerset 2017/2018’.

This leaflet outlines the county policy on salting routes, describes what we can and cannot do and what 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 were used to develop this network. This also indicates that the majority of roads will not receive treatment and that we all, as road users, have responsibility for our own safety.

Anything you can do to spread the word within your community/organisation will be much appreciated.
