Gritted streets and routes

  • Priority 1 routes are red, these are gritted first.
  • Priority 2 routes are blue, these are only gritted in cases of extreme and prolonged icy conditions and after priority 1 routes have been completed.
  • Gritted street information is also available as a list on this page.

Winter gritting - frequently asked questions

The pre-treatment network mainly covers the main routes into and through the town and does include all of the scheduled bus routes. This gives quite a large coverage of the total network (over 50%) and provides a treated route within a reasonable distance of residential areas.

The network is checked before the start of the winter season to see if bus routes have changed and amendments are necessary. When bus services are stopped this does not necessarily mean that we will stop pre-treatment as some routes are on main links to villages.

We do not change the pre-treated network part way through the season unless for engineering difficulties such as road closures.
