Gritting West Northamptonshire
Our aim is to make Northamptonshire's roads safer. We want to ensure that you can travel with a minimum of delay and disruption during severe winter weather.
See advice on driving in adverse weather conditions on Gov.uk.
Which roads are gritted and when
The roads we are responsible for gritting are split into two categories:
- The precautionary network (P1). Salting will take place whenever there is a potential hazard with forecast temperature of +0.5 or below
- The adverse network (P2). Pre-treated during daytime hours in advance of high confidence of forecasted snow. Also, when the forecast temperatures are not to rise above zero for 48 hours
Motorways and trunk roads are gritted by National Highways (formerly Highways England).
Occasionally, gritting arrangements do not go to plan. You should never assume that a road has been treated but should drive in accordance with the prevailing conditions. Please remember that the majority of minor roads will receive no treatment at all.
