Gritting lorries were out across Medway throughout the weekend as temperatures tumbled.
There are 5,000 tonnes of salt stockpiled for use on the area’s highways, 388 salt bins and eight gritting vehicles.
The Met Office has issued a yellow warning of severe weather across the country today (Monday) and forecasters say several centimetres could fall.
Around 5cm of snow was predicted over low ground, with up to 10cm or more over high ground.
Gritting lorries have been working overnight on major routes, and sweeping gangs will treat priority footpaths and car parks if there is significant snowfall or freezing conditions.
Medway's frontline services chief Cllr Phil Filmer (Con), said: “Medway Council are fully prepared and our teams will be working hard to salt all primary and secondary routes across the area and minimise any potential disruption to residents.
“As always, our advice to motorists is to take care on the roads, and should there be severe weather conditions, to consider whether their journey is really necessary.
“They should also ensure they have warm clothing, a mobile phone and a torch with them.”
