Surrey County provides gritter Twitter services

Surrey County Council will provide updates on weather and traffic via Twitter handle @surreytravel.

Months of planning to keep residents safe.

Surrey County Council is providing a gritter Twitter service this year. @surreytravel will provide updates on gritting, weather conditions, road closures and traffic information across Surrey to give motorists a helping hand planning their winter journeys. Months of planning at the council and contractor May Gurney are to help keep conditions safe.

The council’s cabinet member for transport and environment, John Furey, said: “Most people are tucked up in bed when our fleet of gritting lorries are out making Surrey’s roads as safe as possible. By tweeting about where the gritters have been and when, we can help people plan their journeys and avoid some of inevitable disruption caused by severe winter weather.”
