Travel and roads

The Met Office have issued a yellow warning for ice, covering North Somerset, from 7pm Monday 19 March until 9am on Tuesday 20 March.

Our gritters, crews and officers continue to work around the clock, treating priority routes.

Please take care and allow extra time for your journeys if you’re travelling today, and drive appropriately for the conditions.

Gritting routes

You can view our gritting routes by visiting our salting the roads page.

We have crews available to attend to emergencies and they are able to carry out some salting/gritting by hand. We’ll prioritise these based on the risk to road users but will attend as many as we can. Please report any road salting problems or issues with grit bins online, using the link.
