A video has been produced to help improve understanding of how winter weather is tackled.
Central Beds Council has made the short video about how it deals with the ‘big three’ for winter – potholes, gritting and streetlights.
There is also a dedicated web page with a handy fact sheet.
Councillor Brian Spurr, executive member for sustainable communities, services at Central Beds Council said: “We’re always working to keep the highways clear and people on the move, but one of the more difficult times of year is winter because the temperatures and weather have such an impact on the roads.
“We’ve been out gritting a few times already, but we know that not everyone understands how we work out when to grit, or which potholes need to be filled first.”
“The short video we’ve produced that explains our approach to keeping people on the move.”
