Hull gritters ready for East Yorkshire snow, city council say
Hull City Council claims it is ready to deal with the snow predicted for the region this weekend.
After the Met Office issued a severe weather warning for the east coast, the council's streetscene services said they are ready to work 24/7 to keep the city moving over the cold snap, which forecasters say could see up to 10cm of snow on the ground.
Gritters will be out, with a focus on the key routes that carry the majority of traffic. City centre streets with high footfall will also be targeted.
There are also 420 new grit boxes now located throughout the city which can be used on any public highway but are not to be used for private residential use.
