Gritting Routes - City of Edinburgh

Each local authority creates gritting routes and regimes to keep their most important roads (and in some cases footpaths) and networks clear come bad winter weather. Most LAs create this as a line dataset. So the national dataset is a line format dataset. Some LAs collect this data as a polygon dataset. We are working with them to convert this into line formats in the future.

We have removed trunk roads that are cleared by private companies e.g BEAR and AMEY from this dataset for the time being as they aren't currently under the LA gritting route regime.

Eventually, the Street Gazetteer will enable us to identify these routes more accurately and coherently.
