Gritter Tracking 

The Ayrshire Roads Alliance have implemented a Gritter Tracking system

Gritter Tracking provides details of out of hour winter service operations.

Gritters can be viewed from 4pm on receipt of adverse weather forecast.

Gritting Routes 

Roads covered in our priority one gritting routes are gritted upon receipt of a weather forecast indicating the onset of frost, ice or snow provided the forecast is issued sufficiently early.

This is usually carried out prior to the onset of adverse weather conditions.

Priority two and three gritting routes are gritted as and when resources are available.

You can view our gritting routes on our Gritter Tracking System

Grit Bins 

Grit bins are located throughout East and South Ayrshire for your convenience. 

Find your nearest grit bin, let us know a grit bin is empty or apply for a grit bin on our Gritter Tracking system
