Quotes

In a written report to next week's meeting, deputy council leader Tracy Simpson-Laing wrote: "I think all are aware that information is key as is personal responsibility."
"If there is any evidence that it has proven to be detrimental to road safety, switch-off the decision should be reconsidered."
"Our winter maintenance team is on stand-by and ready to be called out as soon as the temperatures drop. They work incredibly hard every year, spreading salt at any timetime of day or night as needed to help keep Birmingham's roads safe."
"When crossing the rails," he added, "we'd say do it at no less than 30 degrees when it is dry and 45 degrees when it is wet – the closer to a right angle, the better."
