Nottinghamshire County Council ready to grit the roads this weekend

Nottinghamshire County Council’s Highways team are preparing to grit major routes in the county this weekend.

Latest weather forecasts suggests that although no snow is currently forecast, temperatures will fall on Saturday and Sunday night before picking up again next week.

Unless conditions change, the Highways team will grit A and B roads and major bus routes once on Saturday evening and once on Sunday evening.

Nottinghamshire residents can keep up to date of conditions on the roads via social networking site Twitter.

The County Council launched its Gritter Twitter service in November 2010 and ever since has been using the social networking site to keep its followers informed of when the county’s roads are likely to be gritted.
