Gritters on the road

THE county council’s 43 gritters will be taking to the roads for one final run through before the cold weather begins.

Gritter Twitter is also back online, ready to start sharing live updates as the temperatures fall - follow at @LincsCC_Winter.

Executive Member for Highways and Transportation, Coun William Webb, said: “This ‘shake down run’ is something our gritter drivers do every year while the sun is still shining, to make sure their vehicles are in top condition with no further maintenance needed and also to check their gritting routes are clear.”

A total of 15 new replacement gritters will arrive in the next fortnight.
