Snow in Surrey

A Surrey gritter covered in snow.

With parts of Surrey seeing snow, a fleet of gritters has been out spreading salt on the county’s roads.

Any residents affected can find information and advice on the council’s website.

They can also get traffic updates on the BBC’s website while the county council is running a twitter feed to provide information on gritting activity.

If the snow is heavy enough, Surrey’s gritters will be joined by an army of farmers equipped with spreaders and ploughs.

Individual schools make their own decisions to open or close and parents should contact their child’s school directly or visit its website for information.

School closures will be confirmed on the county council’s website, along with any county council building closures or disruption to library services.

Details about school transport and bus services can also be found on the county council’s website.

Social workers are standing by to visit vulnerable people to make sure they are safe and residents are asked to check on neighbours, friends and family.

Ahead of winter, the council stockpiled 16,000 tonnes of salt to treat roads across the county and filled more than 1,700 grit bins.
