Still no salt or grit in southwaite

Usually Highways provide grit and salt in October - ahead of Winter. This did not happen again this year - and was reported two months ago. There is a highway fault at the junction with Wreay Road - water issuing out of the carriageway after it has rained - this was also reported two months ago. When we get frosts - this junction will be a skating rink! At least this is a matter of public record and in the event of any road traffic accident the evidence shows that the County Council has failed to act!

  • Highways website is still not working properly...

    So today I telephoned the helpline listed on the grit bins. They have no records - and we still have no grit!
