Membership & Subscriptions


There are two main types of contributors to the NWSRG, Members and Industry Associates.

Members comprise UK Highway or Roads Authorities, consultants, contractors and other organisations that provide winter service. They pay an annual subscription based on the length of treated network published by each member which gives them access to the most up-to-date practical guidance, research findings and reports.

Industry Associates comprise industry manufacturers, material suppliers and service providers (i.e providers of services to the industry rather than providers of winter service delivery to owners and operators). They provide no financial support to the NWSRG but are expected to assist the group in the delivery of it's stated aims by providing technical support, equipment, resources and/or materials.

An application form to become an Industry Associate is available here  Application forms should be sent to nwsrg@trl.co.uk
