We have a duty to keep public roads and footpaths as safe as possible for vehicles and pedestrians in adverse weather conditions.
We treat roads and pavements with salt (often called gritting) and clear routes to prevent delays and keep services open using information sent to us from the Met Office. Car parks are also assessed for treatment.
We're not responsible for all routes, check which roads and footpaths are treated using our interactive map:
Before each winter season commences, we conduct a review of the Winter Service and make alterations, where appropriate. The Winter Service Plan for 2021-2022 sets out Policy and general operational parameters, procedures and practice in Dumfries and Galloway.
