Winter road maintenance and gritting

How we maintain Westmorland and Furness's street and roads during the winter months, including gritting and salting routes and salt bin locations.


We look after most of the roads in Westmorland and Furness. In the colder months of the year, between October and April, our winter road maintenance plan is in action across Westmorland and Furness. 

If the weather forecast shows that cold, icy and snowy weather is due, we will send our gritters out to spread salt on our network of priority 1 and priority 2 routes
