SOMERSET COUNTY COUNCIL HIGHWAYS

This leaflet outlines the county policy on salting routes, describes what we can and cannot do and what the public can do to assist, including advice on the clearance of snow from pavements. It also contains a map showing the Pre-Salting Network in Somerset and the criteria that were used to develop this network. This also indicates that the majority of roads will not receive treatment and that we all, as road users, have responsibility for our own safety.
