    The benefits of our Winter Gritting & Snow Clearance Services


    Winter gritting and snow clearance are often complex to manage as many liability issues surround them. Our winter gritting and snow clearance services take this away from you.

    Our highly trained team has spent many years developing their knowledge and skills to ensure our winter gritting and snow clearance services are delivered to the highest standard on every occasion. It doesn’t matter if you operate Monday – Friday or seven days a week. Our team can ensure your premises are safe for everyone. CityGroup keeps your business moving with our complete winter commercial gritting services.

    CityGroup can keep ice and snow at bay this winter, ensuring your premises are as safe as possible for staff and visitors. Snow and ice pose real safety risks to personnel, whatever facility you maintain. Precipitation can freeze without sufficient preparation and render your site inaccessible to vehicles and pedestrians. CityGroups expert team can ensure a gritting scheme is in place, keeping surfaces free from potentially dangerous snow and ice.

    Ice can pose a health and safety risk on footpaths, access roads, or pavements. You can significantly reduce the likelihood of accidents and potential injuries by gritting these surfaces in advance of icy weather. As well as safeguarding personnel, gritting can make incidents involving motor vehicles much less likely.

    CityGroup has delivered quality, professional gritting services for many years. Our customers include multi-site operators, managing agents, football stadiums, Fortune 500 companies, office and retail parks, and the public sector. CityGroup provides commercial gritting for private roads, pavements, and car parks to various companies across the Northwest.

    Our proactive winter gritting services ensure that your site has a winter maintenance plan, which is necessary to ensure your business stays open and safe through the winter. Our winter gritting service is triggered based on the weather forecast for road conditions. We apply salt before frost, ice, or snowfall forms. This activates the salt to prevent bonding with the road surface.

    All visits are reported on our bespoke portal. This technology includes vehicle tracking and gives our clients complete transparency of our work in real time. This evidence is essential for both ensuring quality and providing evidence in the event of a legal claim.

    We store more than 20,000 tonnes of salt stock for winter gritting, providing 30 days’ worth of salt stock at our depot. We have additional emergency salt stored at locations across the Northwest in the event of prolonged periods of cold or icy weather conditions.
