Meanwhile, Sheffielders stuck in gridlocked traffic on Boxing Day evening have continued their calls for an improvement to the city’s gritting situation.Many angry readers contacted The Star with concerns over an apparent lack of salt on the roads and empty grit bins.But a spokesman for Amey, the council contractor in charge of gritting, insisted its teams had been out ‘around the clock.’
The spokesman said: “The Streets Ahead team completed a full grit run before the snow and we have manned 19 gritters around the clock since then, laying over 700 tonnes of grit to keep Sheffield moving. “All priority one routes were passable by 5am on Saturday morning and we continued to work on the priority two roads all day.”n More in People pullout More...
