Award of contract for Winter De-icing Salt

The supply of de-icing salt 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 April 2021, and new contracts are required.


In accordance with the Council’s Standing Orders on Procurement and Contracts and subject to the key decision made by the Cabinet Member for Highways and Infrastructure, the Director of Highways, Transport and Planning has concluded the procurement process for the provision of winter de-icing salt.
