Please note:

We aim to treat priority routes before the road surface temperatures fall to 0°C.

Precautionary gritting is carried out on A and B roads, commuter routes, steep main roads to villages, housing or industrial estates, including roads leading to main hospitals and large schools.

Gritting is carried out on 40% of roads - roads used by more than 90% of all the traffic in the district. On average, you are never more than 400 metres away from a treated route.

Before you start, you will need to tell us:

  • Where you need the grit
  • Specific details of the request
  • For example, street to be gritted or added to an existing gritting route, location of grit bin
  • The reasons why it should be gritted or added
