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.
