From November to March we will grit certain roads and footpaths when weather forecasts predict icy conditions.
Salting takes up to two hours and is normally completed by the start of the working day but delays can occur due to traffic conditions. If rain is forecast salting has to be delayed to stop the salt being washed away.
Priority is given to the inner and outer ring roads and the roads connecting them.
We also treat priority footpaths, depending on how bad the weather is. This includes areas of the city centre. Other well used footpaths will be cleared and treated when resources are available. We also provide salt bins at various locations for you to use on footpaths. We inspect and fill the bins throughout the winter.
Off road council cycle routes are treated with grit sand in the early stages of winter and then monitored to see if further treatment is necessary.
Car parks are not routinely salted.
Use our online forms to report problems with roads, highways and pavements including snow, ice and gritting and salt bins.
You can view the location of salt bins using our online maps.
