Gritting: Outline

Gritting is part of the Winter Service provided by the Lancashire Highways Partnership.

Precautionary gritting is undertaken on Motorways, A and B roads and certain important local roads. These comprise over 33% of the County maintained road network and it will not normally be possible to add more roads to the routes for precautionary treatment.

The list of roads to be treated may be extended when snow and ice persist and provided that the above priority roads have been already been restored.
