New Winter Service Guide Published

Together we are Forbes


23 May, 2019

The National Winter Service Research Group ("NWSRG") has published a new practical guide for winter service.

The latest national code of practice 'Well-managed Highway Infrastructure' published in 2016 no longer contains information relating to the delivery of the winter service. The UK Roads Board, on behalf of the UK Roads Liaison Group therefore asked NWSRG to develop a practical guide for users to provide a key source for winter service guidance.

According to the NWSRG, the new best practice guidance incorporates the latest research, trial results and industry experience to assist Local Authorities in the delivery of a winter service.

The published sections to date include:

  • Salt Storage
  • Treatment Methods and Technologies
  • Spreader Management
  • Salting Spread rates
  • Treatments for Snow and Ice

A copy of the latest guidance can be found on the NWSRG website. Further sections are set to be released as and when they are finalised.
