Biggest Barn Stores Winter Salt

SCOTLAND’S largest salt barn is open for business as part of a huge operation that aims to keep Scotland’s trunk road network moving during the winter months.

The new facility at Polmadie, Glasgow can hold 17,500 tonnes of salt, and acts as a strategic asset to help treat the trunk roads in the south west of Scotland. The building also harvests rainwater for use in brine production and solar energy to offset the carbon footprint of its operations.
