Winter gritting

by Amanda Taylor on 19 December, 2009

As the weather gets chillier, people are reminded of the crisis last year when many schools were closed and many pedestrians and cyclists came to grief because roads were left ungritted.

The Conservatives who run Cambridgeshire County Council are selective about the roads that it grits, and Liberal Democrat councillors on the County have been putting on the pressure for individual streets that have been literally left out in the cold.

 Meanwhile, city councillors have been asked if they would welcome salt bins for their areas – provided local residents undertake to scatter the salt.

 What do you think? Would you be willing to do this job in order to keep more roads safe when the cold snap comes?

    I would happily join a team of local residents to salt our streets.
