See priority gritting routes

We have ten priority routes which cover major roads. These roads lead to fire stations/hospitals and cover bus routes.

These routes get treated before a forecast of ice or snow. This takes approximately three hours to complete.

We also prioritise requests from the emergency services. For example, where a patient needs transporting for life-saving treatment.

When we expect settling snow, we also fit ploughs to winter maintenance vehicles. Once traffic is flowing on our priority routes, we will then continue across the borough.
