Cuts In Gritting Next Winter Will Hit Woodford
According to an article on the Daventry Express web site, planned cuts to precautionary gritting will mean that the following roads won’t be gritted as a precaution against freezing:
- Byfield Road
- Scrivens Hill
- Church View
- School Street
- Station Road
- Hinton Road
These will be among almost 500 roads in Northamptonshire that will no longer be treated, saving the County Council an estimated £475,000.
Northants County Council have published the detail of their proposals here. Precautionary gritting will continue on the Byfield Road from the junction of Phipps Road to Byfield. Effectively it is the old part of the village that is impacted by these changes; the routes to the shops and the school. NCC will also be removing gritting bins at the foot of Scrivens Hill, Eydon Road and Hinton Road.
Manor Road – Adams Road, Membris Way – Ash Way, Scrivens Hill, Station Road, High Street Church Street, South Street and the Eydon Road will continue to be gritted in “adverse conditions” (i.e. “during daytime hours in advance of a high confidence forecast for snow or when the forecast temperatures are not forecast to rise above zero for 48 hours.”)
