Keeping Bridgend County Borough moving through the winter

As the evenings draw in and the weather turns colder, Bridgend County Borough Council has plans in place for supporting residents and keeping the county borough moving throughout the winter months.

 

With more than 790km of road to look after throughout the county borough, the council’s Winter Maintenance Plan lays out how workers will salt roads, clear snow and keep traffic flowing easily throughout the winter months.

The plan identifies priority routes and takes account of centres for the emergency services, bus routes, isolated villages, streets on steep inclines, industrial and shopping areas, schools and approaches to cemeteries, GP surgeries and care homes. It also outlines secondary roads which will be dealt with after the main highways network has been treated.

The council also has plans in place for other frontline services such as Homecare and kerbside recycling and refuse collections, and parents and pupils can check for school closures due to severe weather on a dedicated webpage.
