Winter Road Gritting around the Village

Home » News » Winter Road Gritting around the Village

Tattenhall & District Parish Council requested that Cheshire West & Chester Council review their gritting routes to include Rocky Lane, Frog Lane and Tattenhall Road, please see below response:

'We receive requests for adding roads to the presalting route network and all requests are tested against the approved policy.

Priority one roads are treated as high priority, we aim to treat them within the first two hours, these include:

  • 'A' Class carriageways, such as main roads.
  • Designated routes to emergency hospitals

Priority two roads are treated after, we aim to complete treating them, within four hours. These include:

  • 'B' roads
  • Major roads carrying four service buses or more per hour between 6am and 10am
  • Roads serving emergency services
  • Public transport centres
  • Secondary schools and colleges
  • Roads with a slope over 10% and carrying more than 1,000 vehicles per day
  • Main access roads to rural communities and villages

Minor roads leading to houses or farms are not gritted unless agreed to because of special circumstances.

Other roads are not gritted when frost or icy conditions are forecast but are treated, after they become icy when all the priority one and two roads have been treated. This is only done when the icy conditions are likely to last for 24 hours or more.

Current Presalting Routes

Tattenhall is gritted as part of route 6 that generally covers the south west of the borough and sections of the A41, A534, A41 and A51. The route takes the gritter off the A534 through Burwardsley and into Tattenhall where it grits the High Street to the junction of Rocky Lane before turning and then heading out of the village via Chester Road. This route covers more of the populated roads from the village, past the primary school, the doctors and through Gatesheath then onto the A41 and is in effect the main access route to/through the village.
