Winter “officially” starts for the county council on the third Monday of October. This gives us time to put our army of gritting machines through their paces so they are ready to roll when needed.

With a road network stretching across 6,400km we focus on the key roads first, known as the primary network, and switch to an extended network when prolonged ice is expected into daytime or if there is snow.

You can see the roads covered on the primary network and the location of our grit bins on our interactive gritting route map.

In order to keep the road network moving in Staffordshire our Highways Team has a number of sophisticated tools and equipment including;

  • Around 40 Gritters + snow ploughs
  • Salt bins / piles
  • More than 20,000 tonnes of salt 
  • Ice prediction weather stations across the county
