Our winter season lasts from 1st November to 15th April and throughout this time our fleet of gritters and drivers will be standing by. Regular updates will be posted on our Facebook and Twitter accounts, including when the roads will be gritted and any weather warnings. All our winter related information that people may find useful or interesting will be tagged with #grittertwitter (please note you do not need an account to view these updates).
The Snow Code has been developed to provide useful advice for local residents and businesses on clearing snow and ice from pathways and driveways.
Gritting across the county will include primary gritting routes and secondary gritting routes as shown on the below map.
- Primary gritting routes are sections of our highway network which serve as major connecting routes for communities and allow the majority of users to commute and access essential services across the County.
- Secondary gritting routes will be gritted in addition to primary gritting routes when there is a forecast of a prolonged cold spell, where road surface temperatures fall below zero or snowfall is forecast.
Detailed gritting routes
The following are detailed gritting routes of footways which our volunteers across Cambridgeshire help treat when temperatures drop to freezing and below. Please note that as they are volunteers there may be occasions when these are not gritted:
