Gritting roads and footpaths
Footpaths are also dealt with on a priority basis. Schools, public transport stations, hospitals and retail centres are considered as main routes.
- Priority 1 footpaths, which are based on a risk assessment, will be treated before 9am
- Priority 2 footpaths will be treated if the conditions are persistent and resources permitted
Areas may not be treated on weekends where it is deemed inappropriate – limited use of school routes.
Footpath and cycle routes will normally be gritted during working hours. The number of gritted areas is restricted by available personnel and resources.
