Shropshire Council

Winter road maintenance

Our main priorities are to:

  • make our roads safe for your use
  • minimise both delays and the financial impacts of winter weather

In other words, we aim to keep Shropshire moving, whatever the weather!

Keeping the roads clear during a cold snap involves a lot of different people, and is an expensive business, so we have to prioritise.

For information on when and where we grit, live alerts from our gritters on the road, school closures, and knowing when exactly we deploy the snow ploughs, follow the links on this page.
