How the council has prepared for severe winter weather
Sunderland City Council has approximately 15,000 tonnes of salt stockpiled for the winter.
The council prioritises road gritting so that the most important routes are treated first. As a result, when snow or ice is forecast or occurs, some local roads are not treated
Grit bins are provided at locations of identified difficulty.
