Winter gritting

We grit the roads in icy and snowy weather to keep them clear. As it's not possible to grit all roads in Plymouth, we grit the main routes used for getting around the city.

Gritting routes and bins

We grit the most important routes first (except the A38 which is managed by Highways England) before we grit other roads and we don't usually grit pavements.

Gritting requests

If there is a road in your area that needs gritting we may be able to grit it after the main routes have been treated. If a road needs gritting or a grit bin needs filling email enquiries@plymouth.gov.uk.
