Preparation For the Winter Season

In preparation for the winter season, please be aware that Havering's Highways Team can assist you with preparations for snow or severe weather conditions. The Highways Winter Plan will be available on the Havering website soon and will give details on those carriageways and footways that will be gritted as a priority during frost, ice or snow. Click here for last year’s plan for information.

During snow-down conditions, the Highways Team will endeavour to ensure that access roads to as many schools as possible across the borough are treated. This may not result in the areas immediately outside schools are treated, as entrances to some schools are in areas that the gritting lorries cannot access, but the team will endeavour to get as close to the schools as possible. 

If you would like to purchase a salt bin for your school premises, these can be purchased directly from the supplier Glasdon UK. The salt itself can be ordered via Highways, the contact is Helen Gibson on 01708 433249. 


The costs are as follows:
¼ Ton - £95
½ Ton - £110
1 Ton - £150
1 ½ Tonnes - £165

Highways can deliver up to 10T if required, the price is available on application. 

Please ensure that should you require salt to be delivered to your premises that an order is placed as soon as possible, as should the severe weather commences, the Highways Team will be required to work to the Winter Plan, and so deliveries of salt will be secondary.

Kind regards,
