Wherever possible, precautionary gritting (salting) will be carried out after considering forecasts and actual weather conditions.

View Sefton's gritting routes and footway gritting routes. Grit bins are also provided on the highway at key locations. 

After heavy snow fall, available resources will be co-ordinated by the Council and partner organisations to clear paths at priority locations. 

Snow ploughing will be carried out on the carriageway when the level of snow is excessive and could cause a potential obstruction.

Cycleways will only be gritted where they form part of the approved carriageway and footway gritting routes.
