Gritting and Winter Maintenance

- About our Winter Service Our Winter Service normally operates from 31 October until 1 April. It is important to appreciate that it is not possible to treat all routes simultaneously.
- Gritter Tracker This tracker aims to allow you to view the gritters deployed on primary and secondary level one carriageway routes when treatment is deemed necessary.
- Report a Grit Bin Issue You can request a grit bin to be refilled, request a a replacement grit bin where it is missing, damaged or broken, or request a grit bin where one isn't present, using the online form below.
- Gritting Routes The Council's Winter Service Policy has classified specific roads and footpaths within West Lothian as either a Primary or Secondary gritting route, not all roads and footpaths are gritted.
