Gritting-VehicleGritting

From October to April we provide a highways winter maintenance service. Salting is normally undertaken anytime between 6.30pm and 7.00am outside of peak traffic periods.

 

The decision to salt roads with dry rock salt is based on the road surface temperature and not the air temperature. There are 8 ice stations strategically installed to assist with providing real-time data.

 

These are located at: A4226 Five Mile Lane, A4231 Barry Docks Link Road, A48 Colwinston, A48 St Georges, A48 Cowbridge Viaduct, B4265 Wick and B4270 Llandow.

Salt Containers

Salt containers are provided for residents to use on Council maintained roads and pavements.

 

When salt is spread it will help prevent formation of ice and soften snow prior to its removal. We will routinely refill salt containers twice during the winter period and during adverse weather as often as is practicable.
