FOI request detail

Keeping Cycle Superhighways clear of snow, ice and leaves

Request ID: FOI-4746-1718
Date published: 14 March 2018

You asked

Can you please supply me with your policy document(s) relating to treating road, path and cycle superhighway, in event of snow and ice, and/or leaf debris clearances. By 'treating' I mean gritting, removing snow, sweeping and removing leaves or anything else necessary to keep the cycle paths clear during all weathers and seasons. I am only interested in policy documents which define the current operation and prioritisation for treatment for ice and snow and removing leaves and other debris in Autumn, rather than documents which are aspirational or relate to past policy.

We answered
