Winter conditions spark road gritting to reduce accidents

Information available on council website

The council has released information about their road gritting plans, which should help keep traffic moving and to minimise delays and accidents.

When the road temperatures are predicted to be at or below freezing, gritting crews treat the main routes across the borough, this work typically taking place at night time and or in the early hours of the morning.

The public can find out routes that are being treated by downloading gritting routes map and priority gritting routes on the council’s website.

Up to 56% of the borough’s roads are treated when snow or ice are predicted and after snow has fallen. These roads cover about 280 miles, and they have been chosen because they are the most important ones to keep traffic moving.
