Gritting in Lowtown

The Winter Duty Supervisor has contacted TCT about Gritting Route 3 at Lowtown in Thornhill.

They have encountered the same issue as previous years regarding the Gritter trying to pass parked vehicles especially with a Plough fitted to the Gritter Unfortunately this section of carriageway did not get gritted this morning as last night the driver was having to stop and chap doors to request the owners move their vehicles in order for Gritter Route 3 to get by vehicles parked in the street which resulted in a delay in gritting the remainder of the Route.

We are asked to pass on our concerns to residents of Lowtown as due to safety issues it may come down to not being able to Grit this area without causing damage to parked vehicles and the Gritter which we do not want.
