ROADS

The Streets Ahead team closely monitor the weather forecast throughout the winter months so they can be ready if bad weather arrives. A fleet of 19 gritters are on standby, 24 hours, 7 days a week through until May.

For regular updates on gritters, please follow @sccstreetsahead on Twitter.

SCHOOLS

Sheffield schools will always do their utmost to stay open, however, changes to opening times may occur due to adverse weather.

If you are unsure if your school is opening, you should hear from your child’s school via their usual methods in the first instance. You can also check all school closures on www.sheffield.gov.uk/schoolclosures

If bad weather coincides with your usual bin collection day, please put your bin out as usual. We may not be able to collect it at the usual time but will aim to collect it as soon as possible.

Request a grit bin or a refill

12 Dec

Request for relocating an under-used grit bin

If you would like to request a grit bin relocation then the site you are recommending would need to meet 2 or more of the following criteria:

  • the road has a drainage problem
  • the road has a steep gradient of 1 in 10 (10%)
  • there is a bad bend that has a radius of less than 50 metres
  • is on a junction
  • the road has a main entrance to sheltered housing
  • the road has a main entrance to a school
  • is in an isolated area
  • traffic signals are close (within 20m)
  • a roundabout is close (within 20m)

If your location meets 2 or more of the criteria then please fill out our online form and ask us to relocate a grit bin. This will be assessed by the Streets Ahead team at the end of the winter season, with priority given to the highest scoring sites.

We would not usually consider grit bins within 200 metres of an existing grit bin, or a grit bin on any road that forms part of the priority 1 or 2 precautionary gritting routes.
