Leeds and Bradford Councils’ Highways teams have pioneered the usage of a potassium acetate de-icer, usually used for keeping airport runways open in sub-zero temperatures.
Cyclists on the Leeds-Bradford Cycle Superhighway have been able to ride through the recent cold weather thanks to the new way of keeping the superhighway clear of snow and ice.
Response from the cyclists using the route has been overwhelmingly positive. Compared with similar cycle routes across the country, the award winning CityConnect route has performed very well, staying clearer than routes in other cycle cities such as London and Amsterdam.
