The recent wintery weather appears to have subsided for the rest of the week although forecasts indicate that it will remain cold beyond the weekend.
Flintshire County Council’s Streetscene & Transportation Winter Maintenance teams have worked continuously for the past 72 hours to ensure priority roads in the County have been gritted. So far, we have used nearly 1000 tonnes of grit on our roads, and operations will continue for as long as necessary. We have continued to support waste and recycling collections and school and public transport operations throughout the adverse weather. We have now been able to direct resources to our secondary routes and have responded to numerous requests for service across the County, and work will continue into tomorrow in areas where support and assistance is identified.
Cabinet Member for Streetscene and Transportation, Councillor Carolyn Thomas said;
“I would like to thank the whole Streetscene team who have worked around the clock this week. These are very challenging conditions. We have had teams at every school and town centre to ensure that access is maintained. Our Gritters have been working non-stop to keep our priority roads safe and passable.”
