Winter gritting update

Our seven grit trucks are currently out treating 600km of the city’s main roads. Unfortunately, we are unable to treat side roads and footpaths. The city's 163 grit bins are being maintained and grit levels checked.

Gritting advice

You can get grit from the 163 yellow grit bins located throughout the city (see map).

  • You can spread gritting salt on pavements and other public footways (not driveways).    
  • Use a spade or shovel to spread the grit thinly and evenly across the pavement.   
  • Gritting bins are topped up twice during the winter season.
