BRIGG TOWN CENTRE IS BAD WEATHER PRIORITY
Brigg Blog has received a snow clearance update.
North Lincolnshire Council says its fleet of gritting trucks was out all weekend helping to keep the area’s roads clear.
A spokesman told us today:
Precautionary and secondary routes have been salted at regular intervals and ploughs have been used on some roads overnight on Saturday and into Sunday afternoon.
Heavily used pedestrian areas in Scunthorpe and Brigg town centres have also been salted.
The council’s nine precautionary routes include principal and main roads, key bus routes, roads to hospitals and schools among others.
Secondary routes include relatively steep hills, heavily used pedestrian areas and local bus routes among others.
For more details visit the gritting routes pages on the council website.
The council has so far not received any reports from any schools that have had to close because of the wintry weather.
Bin and recycling box collections are being carried out as normal today, Monday 6 February, but some properties in Low Burnham have proved inaccessible for the kerbside contractor's lorries.
People are asked to leave any uncollected bins or recycling boxes out where they are easily accessible. They will be collected as soon as it is practical to do so.
Temperatures are likely to remain around freezing for the rest of the week so there is a risk of ice on the roads.
Drivers are urged to take extra care and allow more time for their journeys.
More useful information covering everything from keeping warm to clearing snow and ice from footpaths can be found on the winter service pages of the council website www.northlincs.gov.uk
