Priority will be given to these locations in the event of bad weather conditions or a forecast causing potential hazard such as frost, ice or snow. Appropriate treatments will be carried out if necessary in the following order:

  • City Centre
  • Shopping centres
  • Entrances to schools, older persons' homes and nursing homes
  • Hospital perimeters
  • Bus stops, Metro stations and pedestrian crossings
  • Footbridges, steps and ramps to subways and underpasses
  • Cycle routes (subject to accessibility for treatment purposes and known usage)

Carriageways

Carriageways throughout the city have been given priorities according to their importance to maintain safe movement of traffic throughout the City. These priorities are:

  • Strategic routes, such as commuter corridors and linking routes between commercial centres including all of the derestricted dual carriageways
  • Distributory roads
  • Local roads such as residential areas

Principal Gritting Routes accommodate the strategic routes, Secondary gritting routes cover both the distributory and more important local roads.

The A19, A1 and A1(M) are dealt with by Highways England.  For information on their winter gritting programme call their information line on 0300 123 5000 or visit their website.
