Contracts for Winter De-icing Salt and Gritter Fleet

The supply of de-icing salt and the provision of a gritter fleet is critical to ensuring the County Council can meet its statutory duty to maintain the highways and to ensure that, so far as is reasonably practicable, safe passage along a highway is not endangered by snow or ice. The contracts awarded for these services in 2019, are due to end in 2021, and new contracts are required.
