Over 500 tonnes of salt has been delivered to Waterside ready for if freezing temperatures hit the borough over the coming months.
The salt which has been put aside is enough to treat the town’s priority routes 20 times. Last year, during the ‘Beast from the East’ and other cold snaps, the Council treated the priority routes 54 times using approximately 1800 tonnes of salt. An additional 1000 tonnes of salt is on provisional order for early in the new year should the weather deteriorate throughout the winter.
