Important things to remember
- It can take time for the salt to become effective. Showers or rain will wash salt off roads leaving them prone to icing.
- Forecasts are not always accurate, and the weather can change rapidly.
- Nearly 80% of the roads are not routinely treated.
- When freezing or snow follows rain there may not be enough time to treat all the network before temperatures fall to zero.
- It takes over 2 hours to salt the network
