In an ideal world we would like to grit all of Anglesey’s 1210 Km of roads but this is not possible because of the cost and time it would take.
The main gritting routes include all main A-roads, the majority of B-roads, most bus routes and some other roads which have specific difficulties.
In bad weather conditions gritting teams will try to treat as many minor roads as possible once the main routes have been salted (The Authority’s 2nd and 3rd priority routes).
Second priority gritting routes will only receive attention where adverse weather persists or is expected to persist at noon and where routes have not been treated within the preceding 36 hours.
Third priority routes will receive attention if conditions persist for 48 hours when resources are available.
Please see the Priority Gritting Routes map as a pdf below. These are the priority routes that will be treated and cleared before all other routes.
