In Staffordshire we have a mixture of primary and extended treatment networks.
The primary network covers the main roads linking people to work, employment and health services for example. It is treated whenever there is a risk of winter hazards forming on the roads.
The extended treatment network will only be treated when prolonged freezing and/or snow conditions are expected. We don’t treat this network when extended periods of winter hazards are not expected.
All treatment networks can be viewed on our gritting route map.
