Who is responsible for gritting?
M6 and A66 are the responsibility of the Highways Agency
All other roads are the responsibility of Cumbria Highways
When icy conditions are forecast priority roads will be gritted by 8am whenever possible.
It is not usual to grit other roads but if there is heavy snow Cumbria Highways will aim to clear at least one route to each community once priority roads are cleared.
