Resilience in severe weather

  • By Jennifer Sibley

London Councils and its member authorities have a role in London Resilience - ensuring London's economy and transport infrastructure continues in times of emergency, civil disturbance or severe weather.

In severe weather, boroughs and their partners grit priority roads across the capital to help keep London moving as smoothly as possible. Boroughs and their partners do everything possible to keep any disruption caused by severe weather to a minimum.

The map below gives more details of the resilience route network. The map can be downloaded from this page, so you can zoom in for a detailed view of the routes.
