Roads to be gritted

ROADS TO BE GRITTED by the DORSET COUNTY COUNCIL (DCC) in the event of ICE/SNOW

In the event of icy roads this winter the DCC has committed itself to keeping various roads fit for driving. The main routes, the A35 and the B3157, will be gritted by the DCC. When snow is forecast the DCC plan will grit the following local route:

From the B3157 though Swyre as far as the junction of Clay Lane and Looke Lane.

The length of Rectory Lane to the T junction with Litton Lane.

Along Litton Lane to Litton Cheney.

Through Litton Cheney to Long Bredy.

Left at Long Bredy to Littlebredy.

At the V junction bearing left (Longlands Lane) to the A35.

See the map below.

Various roads in Puncknowle are not covered by the DCC plan.  In an attempt to cover this the Parish Council has called forward and stored sufficient salt.  The likely trouble spots in our villages have been identified and volunteers living close to each of these trouble spots have taken charge of a sufficient quantity of salt to cover these areas.

If you have any questions please contact Derek Heaver, 898466.
