Winter maintenance policy

Due to time and cost, we can’t grit all of Norfolk’s 6,125 mile road network (each gritting run costs approximately £40,000).

Our gritting runs cover just over a total of 2,050 miles (35% of the network) 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 maintenance policy.
