Gritters are at the ready

Fife Council gritters will be working today and through the night to keep all main roads in the Kingdom clear from the forecast snow.

Standby crews have been rested today in anticipation of a busy night treating Fife’s roads through Wednesday and into Thursday.

Parks staff will be out tomorrow morning treating and clearing footpaths.

Bob Mclellan, head of transportation and environmental services, said: “We’ve more than 140 staff at the ready. Our focus is to keep all the main road and bus routes clear, as well as clearing footpaths outside schools, hospitals and main shopping areas.

“We’re well prepared with good reserves of salt. We’ll continue to monitor and take action to keep all main roads and bus routes as clear as possible.”
