Gritting of Bedford Borough roads
You can see a plan of the roads which are gritted in Bedford Borough, on the Winter Gritting Plan .
We have reciprocal arrangements in place with neighbouring Councils to ensure that we all make best use of our gritting vehicles. Therefore, some of our gritters cross into neighbouring administrative areas, and some of our roads will be covered by our neighbours gritters. Full details of these arrangements can be seen in our Winter Maintenance Policy document .
