Gritting Update

Gritter

There were some difficulties with road conditions in Ramsbottom over the weekend.

Gritters were out regularly over the course of the weekend. Separate gritting runs were undertaken at the following times:

Friday 16th January -17:00 and 22:30

Saturday 17th January – 08:00, 11:30, 13:30, 16:30 and 22:30 (sometimes with snow ploughs attached)

Sunday 18th January – 02:00 (2 routes), 13:00 and 19:00.

I understand some gritters got caught up in traffic and in the icy conditions but Bury Council assure me that they are doing everything possible to keep our roads open in the winter weather.
