We’re breaking the ice this winter by inviting you to name our winter fleet.

The winter maintenance season runs between October and May and during this time we’re on standby 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Our 35 vehicles are easy to recognise in their livery colours of yellow and blue as they travel our road network, spreading salt to keep our motorways and trunk roads open. We have 166 drivers working through the days and nights to keep the 27 routes around the network free of snow and ice.

If you’d like one of our gritters to wear your moniker, please Tweet us using #grittertwitter. No Twitter account? No problem! Just email your ideas to

We’ll unveil our snow patrol in a couple of weeks, so make like the winter and get snappy with your suggestions!
