Brampton residents can use mobile app to track snow removal progress this winter

Winter is now upon us, as snow is in the forecast for Brampton this weekend.

This winter, residents will be able to track which roads and sidewalks have been cleared using the City’s 311 mobile app, as well as online.

Additionally, through the app, residents can check snow maintenance progress, road priorities, and if a plow is near them so that they can move their cars off the road.

Further, if their road has not been cleared within 24 hours of a heavy snowfall, residents can use the app to submit a service request to have the road cleared.

Moreover, as part of a motion approved by City Council in 2019, snow removal crews will be dispatched after 5 cm of snow has accumulated, rather than the previous amount of 7.5 cm, which means faster response times during heavy snowstorms.

“One of our largest operations at the City is responding to winter conditions. We are committed to making the season safe and enjoyable for our residents, and maintaining 4,053 lane kilometres of roads, 1,007 kilometres of sidewalks/walkways and 211 recreational trails annually,” Paul Vicente, Regional Councillor for Wards 1 and 5, said in a news release.

“When everyone does their part to keep our community winter-ready, we can all get to where we need to, safely,” he said.
