Gritting and salting roads
Who is responsible for gritting?
M6 and A66 are the responsibility of the Highways England
All other roads are the responsibility of Cumbria County Council
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.

- M6/A66 - Highways Agency on 0300 123 5000
