Steed: Kingston’s snowy operation has been “grit”

Kingston’s Executive Member for Transport has assured local residents that the Council was well prepared for this week’s bout of extreme weather conditions – and it continues to have good reserves of salt for gritting the roads.

Cllr Bob Steed said: “The press have been covering stories on how during the current unprecedented weather conditions, some Councils’ low stocks of salt has meant travelling chaos across the UK.

“I am pleased to say that Kingston had an excellent contingency plan in place.

“The Council was both well prepared and efficient in reacting to this week’s extraordinary level of snowfall. We concentrated our efforts on clearing priority roads -- such as the key routes to hospitals and schools as well as all major roads.”

He added: “The Council has ensured that essential travel across the borough was made as safe as possible.”
