Gritting (salting) route map

The interactive map below shows the treated routes and salt bin/pile locations across the whole of the county. For precautionary salting, the treated network is split into a two-tier hierarchy made up of a primary treatment network and an extended treatment network.

Primary treatment network

Map Key

Grit Bin - re-filled throughout the season.
Grit Bin - pre-season fill only.
Salt Pile - re-filled throughout the season.
Salt Pile - pre-season fill only.
⎼⎼ Primary gritting network.
⎼⎼ Severe weather only.

It would be impossible to provide precautionary treatments across the entire road network and our priority is to firstly keep major transport and freight links clear such as A and B roads and to target routes which carry high volumes of traffic.

Extended treatment network

The extended treatment network will only be treated when prolonged freezing and/or snow conditions are expected; it will not be treated in marginal weather conditions when such extended periods of ice and snow are not expected
