The unexpected nature of the Scottish weather can often mean that the freeze/thaw/freeze cycle along with rain requires us to continually revisit and re-treat our priority gritting routes both carriageway and footways.
Most people reasonably recognise that main roads, access to fire stations and bus routes need to come first before smaller streets are done.
Grit bins are in place to make sure that residents can get access to grit for their local roads and pavements. It means that communities can help themselves, which is particularly important during prolonged cold spells when the council's roads service needs to focus on keeping main routes open and moving across the area.
