Gearing up for winter driving
PLANS are in place to keep Argyll and Bute moving this winter.
There will be 38 vehicles available round the clock to keep roads open and the number of drivers will be increased.
More than 15,000 tonnes of salt are being stockpiled and 12 road surface and weather monitoring stations will be used.
Policy lead for roads and amenity services Councillor Roddy McCuish said: ‘With our winter maintenance plan and a budget of £1.645 million, we remain committed to keeping Argyll and Bute moving which is why we have again put in place a robust maintenance plan to keep our roads as clear and safe as possible.’
