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 (23 Nov 2014) to noon on (24 Nov 2014)

Persistent and occasionally heavy rain will gradually clear eastwards through the afternoon, clearing by 1700hrs. It will be cloudy at first, then clearer skies developing allowing Road Surface Temps to dip close to or below freezing. Ice is likely to form during the sub-zero period where surfaces remain damp from daytime rain, with a risk of frost too. Some fog patches may also form under the clearer skies, before dissipating during Monday morning

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.
