Happy New Year!

Welcome to the first MK Highways newsletter of 2017.

Milton Keynes turned 50 on 23 January so in this edition we will take a look back at the last five decades of highway development in the city.

 

Gritting 

During the winter months our team monitor the advanced weather forecasts to determine if a gritting run is needed, how much salt (grit) should be spread, which routes to cover and when to send the gritters out. 

So far over the winter period we have been out on 47 occasions to grit the road network and used 2585 tonnes of salt!

Up to date messages are posted on our social media channels - Twitter @mkcouncil and Facebook mkcouncil1

 

Remember! 

If visibility is poor i.e. less than 100m due to fog or mist, you MUST switch on your lights!

You should turn them off again when visibility improves.

Here you will find typical costs of the main assets that the highways team and their service provider Ringway repair, replace or install. Projects and schemes cost varying amounts due to the size of area and complexity of the work.
