THE national shortage of lorry drivers should not affect the gritting of Oxfordshire’s roads this winter.
Oxfordshire County Council, the highways authority, says it has a full complement of more than 50 drivers, including back-up crews, for when freezing weather strikes.
An extra 15 drivers were trained last year in case crews were forced to self-isolate because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The crews are based at three depots, including one at Woodcote.
