Welcome to the Autumn 2017 Highways Newsletter!

From now on we will also feature transport articles from the Council's Sustainable Transport team including cycling, walking, passenger transport and transport policy.

 

It's been a busy few weeks for the Highways team with the A509 improvement project continuing, gritting lorries starting to do network runs as the temperature drops and the launch of a new road safety campaign called Game Over! aimed at educating teenagers of the dangers of distraction when crossing the grid roads.

You can watch the latest vlog about the A509 project on the Council's YouTube channel

 

There will also be a live Facebook and Twitter session on Friday 1 December between 10am and 2pm where you can direct your questions about highways to the team. Join us on Facebook @mkcouncil1 or on Twitter @mkcouncil or @ringway_mk

Our gritting crews have already been out across MK on their first grit runs of the season. Weather forecasters predict another mild winter for us with a brief cold snap so it's a good idea to be prepared.


Here's some handy tips and advice for driving in winter...

We take site safety very seriously and this includes working within the public areas as well as closed work sites.  Any reports of needles are acted upon quickly to protect the public and staff from injury.
