You can subscribe to a text message service warning you about slippery pavements.
Subscribe to the warning messages by sending a text message to the number 16130. Text messages sent to you in the morning warn you about slippery conditions arising during the night. The messages are a free service provided by the City to the residents. The service has generated some excellent feedback.
A warning message is sent whenever the winter maintenance supervisor notices that the conditions have become dangerously slippery. Sanding the pavements takes time, but the warning reaches the residents immediately.
However, caution must be used even when no warning has been issued.
