Salting, gritting and snow

Salting, gritting and snow


Winter Service is the salting and gritting service we provide from October through to April (longer if forecasts indicate that cold weather will continue).

This service operates on a standby basis, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and includes:

  • Salting roads
  • Snow ploughing
  • Grit bins at priority locations

When roads are assessed to require salting due to low temperatures, icy conditions and/or snow, our gritters are sent out to salt roads on the network.
