About the seminar

Winter maintenance services are essential for local residents and businesses but changeable and unpredictable weather conditions, increasing litigation from  the public and keeping pace with new innovations and technical developments can all add to the challenges facing Highways Winter Maintenance Services.

This seminar will explore exemplar councils in their winter maintenance approaches and tackle issues such as:-

  • Weather predictions with the Met Office
  • Winter Maintenance Performance
  • What are the legal requirements for winter maintenance managers?
  • What are the benefits in gaining asset management accreditation?
  • Can you exploit social media to better expand your communications reach to residents at critical times?

All these issues and more will be discussed and debated with ample opportunity for delegates to network, learn and share ideas and information from each other.

Alongside a trade exhibition this event is a timely and affordable learning seminar for all involved in the winter maintenance service.
