The Department for Transport has made no estimate of the costs to it arising from the severe weather conditions in the period between 4 January and 18 January 2010.

During this period, the Department took prompt action to respond to the exceptional circumstances experienced by our transport systems. In particular, the Department activated the Salt Cell on 6 January to provide advice on priorities for deliveries.

All costs incurred as a result of activating the Salt Cell will be met from within the Department's existing resources.
