Getting our roads ready for winter

Living here in Ramsbottom, our winters can sometimes be pretty harsh, and this year the forecasters are predicting a period of very cold weather.

That’s why we’re calling on local residents to help make sure that our roads are repaired, our grit bins are re-filled and gullies and drains cleared of any blockages before the winter sets in.

The easiest way to get these reported and sorted is by using Bury Council’s online reporting tool here: http://www.bury.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=10377

It’s quick, easy and means that the Highways Department will know straight away about any issues.

Alternatively, you can use the “Fix My Street” website here: https://www.fixmystreet.com/

The Greater Manchester area receives over £34,000,000 a year from the Government for repairing potholes and maintaining the local highway infrastructure.
