Highways update

The snow and the extreme cold temperature last week will be a challenge to our network and the highways team. This weather will further damage the network and we will see an increase in reports of defects, the local highways team will do their best to inspect the network but this will be a challenge in a short space of time, so we require your help as local residents and local members, if you see any new defects then please report them on the SCC report site, many of the larger defects will get temporary repairs to meet the response time on these and we will return to carry out a full repair in the coming weeks.

Also much of the schedule work was cancelled last week and this will have a knock on effect to other scheduled works, also some of the teams will be helping on emergency repairs, so I apologise for the cancelations and we will get on top of the schedule as soon as possible.

My colleague Cllr Paul Deach, has created this short video which demonstrates how easy it is to report a defect on the highway.
