Gritting of primary and secondary roads within the district when weather conditions may prove hazardous is the responsibility of Leicestershire County Council. View further information about the roads that are gritted in Leicestershire.
The County Council also provide grit bins for public use on roads and pavements in potentially dangerous areas.
When ice is forecast, 45 per cent of the road network (around 1,200 miles of the network) is treated. The gritting routes include A and B roads, some C class roads, major commuter routes, major bus routes and, as far as is possible, at least one route through all Leicestershire villages.
Visit the Leicestershire County Council web site for information on any disruption to services during bad weather, including bus services, library closures, and social services.
Leicestershire County Council manage pavements in the district. Report a path that needs clearing of snow or ice to Leicestershire County Council.
