Winter service policy

Due to time and cost, we can't grit all of Norfolk's road network (each gritting run costs approximately £40,000).

We treat approximately 2,200 miles (3,500km), which is 34% of the County's total network of 6,125 miles (9,857km) on A, B and some C class roads, commuter and major bus routes and, as far as is possible, one route into all villages.

Some pavements in the pedestrian areas of central King's Lynn, central Great Yarmouth and central Norwich are also treated as a priority.

This is set out in our winter service policy (PDF) [3MB].
