Snow Clearance On Our Roads

We start clearing snow in Bournemouth when 40mm of snow has fallen. We prioritise clearing main traffic routes.

When roads become covered in snow our aim is to clear Bournemouth’s main roads in the shortest time possible.

We start snow ploughing when 40mm of snow has fallen and snow continues to fall.

In extreme conditions we might need to spread a mixture of salt and grit onto the snow to give vehicles traction, for example if the snow is compacted.
