GRITTERS OUT FROM 17:00 WITH ANOTHER COLD NIGHT IN STORE

Gritters will be deployed from their depot at Stag Lane once again this evening (Sunday).

The Island’s road network will be treated from 17:00 as a result of the anticipated freezing temperatures this evening and overnight into Monday morning.

Pedestrian bridges at Stag Lane and Foxes Road will also be gritted.

By what I have seen, the gritters travel too fast and the grit gets flung into the hedges and kerbs, with little going onto the road..

I agree with you all they want to do is get the gritting done as quick as possible and get back to there office for tea and sausage sandwiches.

Quite right. Bet these people wouldn’t do it. My son has to grit some of the car parks and it’s an awful job in the cold and dark.

And that is why they are rushing to use up all the grit when it’s not really needed. Once it’s gone it’s gone.
