Gritting

We are responsible for gritting roads in Somerset, except for on the M5, A303 and A36 which are treated by Highways England. On this page you will find a map showing our precautionary salting network which covers around 900 miles or 21% of the total roads in Somerset. These roads are treated when road surface temperatures are predicted to drop below zero and frost or ice is expected.
You can find the latest information about County Council services that are being affected by bad weather and tips on preparing for winter on our snow and ice page
