To keep up to date on road gritting in Herefordshire, follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/herefordstreets.
In extreme weather, we list road closures on the road closures and diversions page.
To find out which roads in Herefordshire are gritted search the gritting routes map.
Of the 2044 miles of road in the county, 598 miles (29 per cent) are priority routes and receive precautionary salting. Our contractor carries out both precautionary and reactive gritting on behalf of Herefordshire Council.
We aim to have all routes completed in two and a half hours. Generally, all planned early morning treatments are completed before 7.30am.
There are 15 priority routes and the maps for these routes can be found on this page.
In cold weather, other roads may be icy and in prolonged freezing weather or snow, we carry out, whenever possible, salting or snow clearance on a set of secondary routes.
There are 25 secondary routes and the maps for these routes can be found on this page.
We treat roads that provide access to schools as a high priority in times of severe or prolonged winter weather.
Footways (pavements) and cycleways (cycle paths)
We treat a defined set of footways and cycleways in accordance with the availability of resources and the prevailing conditions.
We treat council run public car parks in Hereford and the market towns when surface temperatures are predicted to remain below freezing for 24 hours or more ice is predicted.
