Welcome to the first 2018 edition of the MK Highways & Transport Newsletter!

 

In this issue there's information about an exciting new community event for MK - the 'MK Soap Box Derby'. This is a fun community event where individuals or teams build a go-kart and race it down a set course which includes obstacles. 

 

There's also a round up of  what's been happening where and when across MK over the last two months. Look out for the weekly updates that are posted on the Council's social media channels Twitter  @mkcouncil and also on Facebook mkcouncil1

 

It's been a busy two months already this year with additional programmes for surfacing, street lighting including a further nine estates being converted to energy efficient LED and extensive redway works being planned for the next few months.

The end of February and into the beginning of March saw some very low temperatures and significant amounts of snow falling across MK. The gritting crews worked around the clock ploughing and spreading salt on the grid roads, main access routes, retail and leisure areas and the redways to keep MK moving.

23 digital display screens are being installed across CMK as part of a contract between MK Council and Clear Channel.


It is expected that this new initiative will bring the Council around £14k per week in revenue which can be used to protect front line services.
