Whatever the weather this winter, East Dunbartonshire Council is committed to keeping roads clear and maintaining public services. But the way to being properly prepared is what you can do, in your own home, and with your neighbours, to minimise the effects of severe weather where you live and work. So don’t get caught out this year.
Our Roads Team is on standby 24 hours a day, and the duty officer checks a forecast website several times a day to help the team decide on gritting action. You can check our weather report and gritting plans on our gritting page - the page is updated every afternoon.
Even an average Scottish winter is likely to include cold snaps and snowfalls, ice, storms, high winds, heavy rain and fog, so the Scottish Government has published information to help you and your family get prepared early.
Ready Scotland’s website contains practical advice and simple steps you can take to protect you, your family, your community and your business from the worst effects of poor weather.
