Norse Highways show true grit

Published On: March 30, 2021

As temperatures continually plunged well below zero, Norse’s dedicated Highways team worked closely with their council partners, battling to clear the snow and keep roads open.

During February’s extreme weather in early February, Norse Highways worked around-the-clock to help keep people safe on snowbound, icy roads.

Partner council, Norfolk County Council, was quick to express its gratitude: “The Norse Highways teams were out in the dark covering 2,200 miles of Norfolk’s roads while many of us were tucked up in bed. We want to say a big ‘thank you’ to everyone at Norse Highways who worked so tirelessly.”

With night after night of heavy snowfall, despite the challenging conditions drivers and gritters continued their regular three-hour run, treating thousands of miles of the Norfolk roads network.

Jason Glasspoole, Operations Director, Norse Highways, was incredibly pleased with his teams’ response: “These are difficult conditions to work in – with freezing temperatures and snow continuing to sweep in throughout the week – but our crews just went out and got on with the job in hand,” he said. Norse Highways is part of the Norse Group, the UK’s leading local authority trading company. The company is a partnership with Norfolk County Council, and provides a wide range of highways services.
