A letter from KCC Highways
We are now entering the winter period for 2020-21 and we would like to take this opportunity to remind you about Highways & Transportation’s winter service provisions.
Please take time to visit our website below:
This section will provide useful information on:
Salt Bins (including locations)
How and when we salt the roads
Clearing snow in the community
The latest weather updates
How we deal with rural roads with help from the local farmers
Tips on Winter Driving
Please also have a look at the Direct Gov Snow Code web site below, which you may find has some useful information and hints: https://www.gov.uk/clear-snow-road-path-cycleway
We also work closely with the local farmers and provide them with the necessary equipment in order to clear country lanes and act as extra resources when we are fully mobilised during a snow emergency.
Our website also provides information on all aspects of highway management, such as our tree policy, information on roadworks and planned works, crash and casualty data. It also allows you to report faults online at http://www.kent.gov.uk/roads-and-travel/report-a-problem
Please take great care on the roads this winter
Highways & Transportation will continue to work hard to keep the roads as safe and clear as possible; however, you can also help us in the following ways:
Drive to the conditions of the road at all times, especially during times of rain, ice and snow
If we do get snow on the roads, please don’t make any non-essential journeys
Thank you for taking time to read this information.
