Winter Maintenance Updates

Whether it’s gritting the borough’s roads or providing school transport, Bedford Borough Council believe it’s important that you know how we are working to keep you and your family safe and sound.


Weather forecast valid from noon on (17 Apr 2016) to noon on (18 Apr 2016)

update for Saturday 16th April - showers moving south through the evening until approx. 21:00. Clear skies will develop by midnight. This will allow RSTs to fall close to or below freezing with a risk of frost, mainly over higher sites, but the dry conditions will reduce the risk of ice. It will continue to be dry though Sunday morning with plenty of sunshine.

Gritting of Bedford Borough roads

You can see plans of the roads that we grit to ensure that all main routes in Bedford Borough are safe and clear of ice.

The gritters tracked on the map below cover the main routes across the Borough. Additional gritting is carried out on some minor urban roads. You can view a plan of the roads that are treated.


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 not be covered by the gritters that you see tracked on the map below. Full details of these arrangements can be seen in our Bedford Winter Maintenance Policy and Operational Plan.
