Road safety in winter

Find out how we keep public roads and footpaths as safe as possible for vehicles and pedestrians in winter.

Track our gritters

You can follow our winter service vehicles as they carry out winter maintenance in severe weather.

Find a gritter

You can check when and where gritters and snow ploughs have been working in your area. You can also check what work is planned.

Grit bins can also be found on the map, so you can report empty, missing or vandalised bins.

Gritter safety

Gritters spray widely so it's best to stay clear of them, especially while they are spreading. Do not drive close behind or alongside them.

Read the RAC advice on what to do if you get stuck behind a gritter.
