We provide a salting and gritting service from October through to April (longer if forecasts indicate that cold weather will continue). Our Winter Service started on 4 October 2019.
This service operates on a standby basis, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and includes:
- Salting roads and snow ploughing
- Clearing pavements during prolonged freezing or snowfall
- Providing grit bins at priority locations.
Full details are available in our Highways Cold Weather Plan 2019/20 (PDF).
