Ask us to refill a grit bin

The Highways England is responsible for gritting and ploughing the A50 and A500. 

We have to spread the salt (commonly known as grit) before the roads become icy or snow starts to fall, although this is not always possible. 

We try to avoid gritting during rush hour.

We grit our footpaths in the city centre and the main shopping centers where there are higher numbers of pedestrians, as well as outside hospitals, secondary schools, homes for the blind and other similar properties. 

We also prioritise areas with gradients of more than ten per cent. 

Use the map below to ask us to refill a grit bin near you.
