We try to keep the major routes on the highway network working safely and effectively as weather conditions and financial resources allow.
We undertake a limited amount of snow and ice clearance to other key areas of the network, such as important footways.
The map below shows our gritting routes (open in new window). These are split into two categories - precautionary (red) and resilience (blue)
Precautionary Routes - Red route - these roads are treated when there is a risk of frost, ice or snow.
Resilience Routes - Blue Route - these roads are treated first during more extreme winter weather and used for snow ploughing.
