Whilst every effort is made to treat the roads detailed on this plan, this may not be possible in severe weather or when other circumstances are out of our control.

We’ve worked out which roads are crucial to keep Newcastle working in severe weather. If there is heavy snowfall over a long period of time, we’ll concentrate on gritting the five main routes across the city, for example the central motorway, the Coast Road and Scotswood Road. We’ll only return to the other roads when we know that those main routes are clear.
