Edinburgh Council have published their Winter Maintenance plan and have advised residents to be familiar with what provisions are available. This is to avoid a repeat of last year’s Christmas chaos where traffic was left at a standstill.
Roads have been categorized and prioritized to allow maximum flow of services and provisions to continue. Therefore main roads such as the A1, Liberton Brae, Queensferry road are the highest priority. Surprisingly many roads have got dual classification yet no clarity has been given as to why.
Curious to know if you will be knee deep in snow, or on the fast track? The council’s list of roads can be found here.
Environmental Leader Councilor Robert Aldridge gives us his take on snow precautions, with commentary from Lauren Witherspoon
