In Bratislava, it can snow at night, so the city is preparing a winter maintenance intervention. This will concern the preventive sprinkling of footbridges and stairs, if necessary also hilly terrains and bridges. The capital informed about it on the social network.
“Spreaders and manual workers will be prepared, who, if necessary, will go to the field even before the critical sections begin to be treated preventively before it starts snowing,” they declared. Preventive intervention is necessary, according to the city, since a continuous layer of snow can quickly form even at temperatures just above zero.
Bratislava wants early winter maintenance to ensure passability of roads and to make sidewalks passable for people traveling to work as quickly as possible.
