I AM very concerned to hear from the council highways department that gritting routes have been reviewed, and Milton Avenue has been removed from the primary gritting route and is now on the secondary route (along with Ridgeway).

My concern stems from the fact the Milton has a steep hill and bend, and is used by a large volume of school traffic heading for the rear entrance of Crosshall School early in the morning.

I am informed by Brian Murdoch, highways supervisor, that secondary routes are gritted when the five-day forecast shows temperatures not rising above zero, or when snow and ice are forecast to form on the carriageway and the conditions continue beyond midday on any individual day.

I believe that residents and parents need to be aware of this change and, if they are concerned, to contact their local councillor.
