Snow gritters in action across the Burnham-On-Sea area

Somerset County Council's gritting teams are working through the weekend to help main roads roads in the Burnham-On-Sea area passable despite the heavy snowfall.

Geoff Dight, Somerset County Council’s Highways Manager, said on Friday: "23 gritters have been working constantly to pre-treat the network which consists of 870 miles of key roads."

"The team have been working really hard to try and keep roads as safe as possible."

"We ask motorists to take care if they are travelling this weekend and prepare their vehicle for winter. Also, allow extra time for your journey and be careful on minor roads which are not treated."

Earlier this year, the County Council took delivery of 7,000 tonnes of salt in order to help keep the county’s roads open.
