Bromley Council snow clearance teams working around the clock
GRITTING crews and snow clearance teams are braced for a busy time over the coming days in Bromley.
The gritters were out overnight salting 260 miles of priority routes across the borough as snow and icy road conditions were forecast.
And today they are out salting pavements outside schools, transport interchanges and in town centres.
For the third year running, Snow Friends resident groups will be clearing snow from their streets, which are areas not part of the council’s snow clearance operation.
Portfolio holder for the environment Councillor Colin Smith said: “Our gritting crews have already salted priority routes on numerous occasions this winter when frosty weather has potentially made for icy road conditions.
“The first 24 hours after snow fall is the critical period in snow clearance terms and we are incredibly grateful to the many volunteer Snow Friends who have pledged their support in clearing snow from residential roads.
“Our snow clearance teams will be focusing on pavements in town centre areas and our gritting crews are ready to operate around the clock for as long as is needed.”
