Leicestershire County Council's gritting team were out for the first time this season on 3rd November. Drivers are on standby every night when temperatures start to drop.
The County Council has 23 gritting lorries which spread some 200 tonnes, dependent on spread rates, of specially treated rock salt and molasses each night, covering approximately 1,300 miles of highway each time they go out. The spreading takes place whenever there is a likelihood of frost, ice or snow affecting roads, and a full gritting run covers 47% of the county's road network, taking between four and five hours. Last winter the gritters carried out 77 runs of the 17 routes, using a total of 12,377 tonnes of salt to keep roads safe. The salt is stored in grit barns in Melton, Misterton, Mountsorrel, Market Harborough and Nailstone. More »
In addition to the gritting team, there are also a number of snow wardens based in communities across the county who grit paths, as well as farmers who at times of deep snow fit ploughs to their tractors and assist the Council in the clearing of roads.
Footpaths are not gritted by the County Council, but the 757 salt bins across the county can be used by members of the public to treat public roads and footpaths. Salt from these bins is not intended for use on private property and should not be used as such.
More information about winter maintenance in Leicestershire, and advice about winter driving and snow clearance outside private property, is available at www.leicestershire.gov.uk/winter-weather
