Treated roads and streets

When our full Winter Service is in operation we treat all roads and streets on our gritting routes when temperatures fall below freezing.  These are the only roads and streets we treat.  We cannot grit all roads throughout the borough.   

We base our decision to grit, or not grit, on the Open Road Winter Forecast Service provided by the Met Office.  Once a decision to grit has been taken, the target is to grit all routes within 5 hours.  The first hour allows for calling out the gritting crews from standby and then 4 hours to get around all the routes and complete the gritting.  We only grit the roads on our gritting routes. 

During periods of severe weather conditions, or if salt stocks are low or limited, then we may have to reduce the service we provide to treating essential roads only.  Essential roads are those which provide access through the borough and maintain local access to critical services such as hospitals, ambulance stations and key points in the food and fuel distribution networks.  These roads also help maintain movement across the country. 

The Winter Service we provide aims as far as is reasonably possible to keep the roads on our gritting routes clear of snow and ice and to allow the safe movement of road users.
