More than 100 miles of Sheffield roads will no longer be gritted before snow as part of council plans to save £100,000 a year.

The proposal would reduce the number of precautionary gritting routes from 720 miles to 610 by cutting the number of ‘priority two’ routes – or roads linking communities to the main highways.

Sheffield Council has launched a consultation on the plans today and says they are needed to meet Government funding cuts of 50 per cent by 2015.

Around 50 per cent of Sheffield’s road network will be gritted as a precaution if the plans go ahead, compared to the 59 per cent treated now.

The areas expected to be most affected are rural communities in the west of Sheffield and those with the smallest populations.

Priority one routes – which cover main arterial links and the busiest routes across the city – and snow clearance work will not be affected.

Coun Jack Scott, Sheffield Council’s cabinet member for environment, said: “There are quite a number of roads in the city we are also proposing to grit for the first time, but I am aware there will be people who are angry their road has been gritted historically and now we might stop doing that.”

The gritting network has grown ‘organically’ over the years, with residents’ requests taken into account.

Major bus routes and roads with a main entrance to a school, doctor’s surgery or other public facility, and those that accommodate over 3,000 cars and have a steep gradient, will be gritted.

Coun Scott added: “It makes sense that we grit roads most frequently used.”
