How National Highways help to keep UK roads safe in winter

28th February 2022

When wintry conditions put road safety at risk, a solution developed and managed by Civica helps National Highways take the right action.

In wintry weather we take it for granted that the gritters will go out and make the motorways and trunk roads safe to drive. But how many of us stop and think about how the winter maintenance teams know when to send the gritters out, how much salt to load up, and which routes need gritting?

Read the case study to discover how the Severe Weather Information Service (SWIS), built by Civica, brings together all the information England's winter maintenance community needs to make decisions about treating the roads.
