Winter Maintenance

GrittingDundee City Council’s aim is to help keep its roads and footways as safe as possible.

During winter months we constantly monitor weather conditions and forecasts using modern Ice Prediction and Thermal Mapping Systems.

Gritting and ploughing vehicles are on standby to act when required.


The City Council’s adopted carriageways and footways are categorised into priorities and are covered for winter maintenance from late October to late March. In adverse conditions, carriageways and footways are treated seven days a week. More information about gritting routes priorities can be found here.

Trunk Roads are maintained by Amey Transport Infrastructure  on behalf of the Scottish Government.  Trunk Roads in Dundee are A90/A972 Kingsway/Forfar Road (north of Kingsway) and A92 Greendykes Road / Broughty Ferry Road.  More information can be found on
