Gritting roads and pavements

Find out about our winter service on our East Sussex Highways Website.

Which roads do you grit?

When icy conditions are forecast we will grit all primary routes first. We grit 42% of the roads in East Sussex. This is all A and B roads and some C roads.

Grit bins

We currently have over 900 grit bins spread around the county. We are working with residents’ associations, as well as parish, district and borough councils where they may wish to buy their own additional grit bins.
