What routes we grit and when
Cambridgeshire County Council treats over 40% of the road network based on the following criteria:
Primary (blue and red) routes
Standard precautionary routes that are treated when freezing weather is forecasted.
All A & B Roads
Links to A&E hospitals and other emergency services
Strategic locations as defined by Go East Roads
Roads adjacent to major fen drains
Routes where scheduled buses are timetabled on a frequency of 5 times or more per week.
Distributor roads to industrial estates.
In the event of emergency, scheduled bus and industrial estate distributor (blue) routes will be given a lower priority to ensure the most vital routes are treated.
Secondary (green) routes
Additional routes which are treated when freezing weather is forecasted for 5 consecutive days.
- Routes where scheduled buses are timetabled on a frequency of less than 5 times a week
- Links to small hamlets
