Our fleet

You may see our gritters out when it is icy or snowy. The gritter lorry beacons will be on when grit is being spread and switched off when grit is not being spread; the only exception to this is when a snow plough is fitted.

Occasionally, you may see our gritters out when it's not icy or snowy, this is because we have to keep them running regularly throughout the year so that they are not stood still for five or six months when they are not in use. These maintenance runs ensure our gritters are ready to go when the winter weather is forecast.
