AFTER snow brought public services across the country to its knees last month, a post-mortem is to be held to see if lessons have been learned.
The work of Hertfordshire Highways will now come under examination from the county council's overview and scrutiny committee at the end of the winter season in April.
Councillor Alan Searing, committee chairman, said: "The main purpose of the scrutiny will be to look at questions like the weather forecasting systems currently used, footpath clearance during extended cold weather and how best to involve district councils in gritting and snow clearance."
Councillor Stuart Pile, executive member for highways, transport and rural affairs, said: "While the recent weather conditions were exceptional, we want to make sure that if such conditions occur in the future, we've learnt all we can from this year's experiences."
