Purpose of Report: To approve a winter treatment pilot that
highways would undertake in maintaining an off road cycle route
The Executive will be asked to approve to undertake an initial pilot winter treatment on off road cycle routes to consider practical treatment options and establish a cost base for further consideration by members as to whether to make cycle route treatment a permanent part of the council’s winter gritting programme.
(i) That Option 1: a limited pilot of winter treatment on cycle routes that are not currently treated as per the map in Annex A, be approved and that delegated authority be given to the Assistant Director Transport Highways and Environment, to vary the route for the pilot.
(ii) That the reviewed winter maintenance plan as found in Annex B be approved.
Reason: To confirm the council’s formal winter maintenance plans and enable the council to trial different treatment options and their effectiveness to reduce risks for those walking and cycling.
