Gritting and road safety
We grit around 156 miles of road around the city.
We prioritise our:
- main A roads and most B roads
- bus routes
- links to schools
- roads that lead to hospitals or are key for emergency services
It is important to remember that gritting a road cannot guarantee it will be free of ice.

How you can help in cold weather
Check on elderly and vulnerable neighbours
Please check on your elderly and vulnerable neighbours to see if they need help with getting food, medicine or care during cold weather. If you know people who are having problems getting services they need, contact our adult social care helpline 01273 295555.
Find out about protecting the elderly this winter on the Met Office website.
We work with homelessness agencies to provide emergency shelter for rough sleepers when the temperature is predicted to drop below 0 degrees Celsius or there is an amber weather warning.
If you are concerned about a rough sleeper at any time, please use Streetlink to get in touch with our outreach team. You can also call on 0300 500 0914. There's more information on our web page how to help people living rough on the street.
