  • Blackburn with Darwen Council provides a winter service from October through to March.
  • Our staff work round the clock during the winter months to keep the roads clear.
  • We monitor the weather closely and where temperatures are due to plummet below zero, we spread salt on the roads to prevent ice and snow forming.
  • If snow settles, then the ploughs are used to clear the roads.
  • Salt bins are also provided at certain locations to assist road users and residents on a self help basis.
