More on Brent Gritting
More snow is expected today, and I have just had an update on street gritting. I understand the "priority network" of main roads was gritted last night and it is being gritted again today. Brent Council cannot grit every road, but it does the major ones and a few in hilly areas. I understand that because of heavy parking there were a small number of roads in hilly areas where the glitters could not progress.
All the Borough's grit bins were full on Friday, and will be replenished on Monday. Pavements in town centres have been gritted to give room to walk, although not fully cleared.
