From October to March we aim to keep the most important roads and some major pedestrian areas in Leeds safe and as free as possible from wintry hazards.
A customisable map which can display gritting routes in Leeds is available on
You can use this page to request a grit bin refill or request a new grit bin.

Grit bins will be refilled when resources become available once the main salting routes and other busy roads have been attended to.
Salt and grit
The salt spreading routes include all the main roads, most other busy roads, most bus routes as well as access to hospitals and emergency services. These are always salted when ice or snow is forecast and get priority attention during prolonged wintry weather.
Once we have treated these roads then we will begin to treat other roads. We aim to salt footpaths and paved areas if there is snow or frost over a longer period.
When snow is about 25mm or 1 inch it is deep enough to plough.
