Snow update from Swindon Borough Council
Richard Fisher, Streetsmart Service Delivery Manager, said: “Conditions on the roads remain hazardous and we urge motorists to avoid travelling unless it is absolutely essential. Our snow ploughs have been out today (Friday, Jan 18) clearing key town roads and various rural routes.
Our gritting crews, which have been working flat out, are poised to work round the clock to treat the roads over the weekend. The snow ploughs will also be deployed
Each gritting trip covers 270 miles, including all main and nearly half of the roads in the Borough. We stress the importance of taking extreme care and wherever possible to avoid road travel.”
