Gritters out tonight as road temperatures plummet to -2ºC

Gritters will be on the roads across the region this evening.

November is here, and that means Nottinghamshire’s gritting teams move to full-time standby, ready for the winter ahead.

Each year the 31-strong fleet of gritters and their drivers go onto full-time, 24-hour standby marking the official start of winter for Nottinghamshire County Council and its highways partner Via East Midlands.

•  First frost expected tonight with snow possible next week, says The Met Office

Last winter, gritting teams completed 70 gritting runs and travelled over 112,000 miles – equivalent to travelling four and a half times around the world!

Gritting forms just part of Nottinghamshire’s winter activity, with teams ready to respond to all types of severe weather and help keep the county’s highways safe and moving.
