Gritting and snow clearing

Priority gritting routes

We prioritise:

  • major roads
  • bus routes
  • steep banks
  • priority pavements in shopping areas, around schools, and on steps and footbridges

Pre-gritting takes place on priority routes as and when the temperature drops.

Gritting the Borough's 311km of priority routes takes around 2.5 hours to complete.
