“During the year, we apply non-slip surfaces and more adhesive surfaces for critical road sections. We install sensors that will provide up-to-date weather data conditions as well as the condition of roads to coordinators. We are preparing a winter operational plan as well as provide important details such as inert sprinkling material for hilly sections, quality winter tires for the public transport company DPB,” said the city.

Its municipal company, Komunálny Podnik Bratislavy (KPB), has prepared 1,800 tonnes of salt for deicing roads and pavements, 400 tonnes of more environmentally-friendly Solmag, and 30 tonnes of zeolite to be used, for example, in parks in case of icy weather. Winter maintenance will be provided by 90 KMB workers in three shifts throughout the week. They will have 10 dumpers of deicing substance for road maintenance in the boroughs of Ružinov, Nové Mesto, Rača, Vajnory, Podunajské Biskupice and Vrakuňa, 14 multicars for sidewalks and three multicars for roads.
