Cleaner streets on the way?
The council has launched four new multi-functional all-season machines that will allow it’s street cleansing teams to clean the city’s pavements faster and with greater frequency.
The small, compact sweepers can also be quickly converted in minutes into grass cutters, snow ploughs or gritters, enabling them to be used all year round.
Cllr Gill Mitchell, chair of the council’s Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee, said: “They are small, lean cleaning machines that can travel on virtually any pavement and will allow our teams to blitz our high density areas more often and with more power.”
Using the time saving machines will also mean street cleansing teams being able to concentrate on other areas of the city.
The machines will be used in the main city centre area and other busy streets throughout Brighton and Hove.
