Winter gritting

Gritting routes

We grit the roads in icy and snowy weather to keep them clear. We grit the main roads used for getting around the city. National Highways manages the A38.

Primary gritting routes are shown in red, secondary gritting routes are shown in blue on the gritting route map.

Grit bins

We inspect and fill all grit bins at the beginning of the winter period. We provide grit to use on roads and footpaths, do not use the grit for gritting private drives. If you see that a grit bin needs refilling tell us.
