Winter gritting services across Northamptonshire are to be increased by Northamptonshire County Council it has been announced today.

The changes will be introduced in the current financial year and will see the introduction of a new intermediate gritting network.

These new intermediate routes will be treated after the precautionary routes have been completed. The amendments are being prioritised so they will be effective as soon as possible.

The changes have been made possible by the continued strengthening of spending controls and financial assistance from Northampton Borough Council.

Cabinet Member for Transport, Highways and Environment Cllr Ian Morris said: “The gritting team do a tremendous job keeping the county moving during the winter, with 24-hour monitoring between the months of October and April.

“We have listened closely to the feedback we have received and I am delighted that we are able to act on it. Our increasingly stabilised financial position alongside the invaluable assistance of our partner Northampton Borough Council means we are able to put extra money into the service to make improvements.”

The county council would advise motorists to never assume that a road has been treated and should drive in accordance with the conditions.
