More Nottinghamshire roads salted after outbreak of cold, rainy weather
SNOW routes in Notts were salted last night for the first time this winter.
Notts County Council normally salts only main A and B roads and most major bus routes.
But it took the decision to extend the usual gritting routes after the recent spate of wet weather and freezing temperatures overnight.
Councillor Richard Jackson, transport and highways committee chairman, said: "We have learned a lot in recent years from bad weather in the winter and are in a strong position to deal with any prolonged cold spell.
Landlords let us advertise your property and find you vetted tenants quickly. Our let only service is £195.
We offer full management services as well as rent guarantee and rent advance. Call us
Terms: No hidden charges, you will be informed of all costs in advance. The letting agency you can trust.

"We have large stockpiles of salt and are determined to keep the county on the move again this winter."
The snow routes are those which are only usually treated in snowy conditions.
Typically, they are additional main routes into and out of villages and industrial estates to help them stay open during prolonged bad weather.
The council has around 18,000 tonnes of salt in stock and a capacity for 22,000 tonnes.
The level is 12,000 tonnes more than official Government recommendations.
