Weather Warning System & Implementation

Met Office Open Road Service

We subscribe to the Met Office’s Open Road Service, the most accurate and reliable weather warning system on the market, as used by The Highways Agency, Local Authorities and Councils across the country. This system works by using Met Office local forecast points, of which there are thousands around the county, to provide hourly forecasts for both road surface temperature and road surface condition. This highly accurate approach enables us to:

  • Minimise the effect of adverse weather on your road network
  • Reduce operational expenditure with more cost-effective use of grit supplies
  • Make better informed, more confident decisions, minimising your exposure to winter risk

Pre-determined Triggers

Prior to contract commencement we work with our clients to predefine the conditions when gritting would take place, tailored to the needs of the site, benefits of this being:

  • Provides transparency for all parties involved regarding when sites will and will not be gritted
  • Helps to limit the amount of reactive call outs which are expensive and often unnecessary

Tracking and Reporting

All of our gritting vehicles are fitted with trackers giving us the ability for real-time reporting.

This technology enables us to monitor and respond to issues as and when they occur, providing our clients with evidence based reporting.

Our Approach

Price Transparency

We understand the worry which often goes hand-in-hand with managing the winter weather on a property or portfolio of properties. This is why we believe in keeping things as simple as possible through price transparency and flexibility. Transparency: We operate an ‘Open Book Costing’ system, which is completely transparent throughout the tendering process and duration of works. For example, for a multiple site portfolio we would quote for each site separately and per visit, rather than providing just one overall cost. Flexibility: Depending on your requirements, we can separate the cost of rock salt from labour costs, ensuring that you only pay for the grit you use or simply give you one all-in cost.

Legal Responsibility

Here to Protect You

At Bennett Landscapes, everything we do is governed by liability protection and legal responsibility, protecting you against the impact of bad weather with the correct level of insurance required. We have specific protection policies for winter road gritting with all of the necessary insurances, processes and technology in place to ensure that if a claim is made, you are fully protected. We believe in a partnership approach and are here to support you 24/7. We will co-defend any claim and provide the evidence that will prove that you took every possible measure to avoid any incidents caused by bad weather.
