Tackling winter weather
Highways teams are currently on standby 24/7 to deal with wintery conditions. They use detailed Hampshire-specific weather forecasts through the winter in combination with real time information from a network of electronic roadside weather stations to make decisions about the best time to salt the roads, where to salt and how much salt to use.
Hampshire’s main roads will always be treated first. These ‘Priority one’ routes cover approximately one third of the county road network and carry the majority of Hampshire’s traffic; covering A roads, some B roads, major bus routes, roads to hospitals and other key emergency hubs, large schools and colleges, areas of high traffic concentration and public transport interchanges. During periods of prolonged severe weather, 'Priority two’ routes, which include remaining B roads and single access roads to villages, may also be treated.
Follow our ‘gritter twitter’ @hantshighways to find out when and where the salting lorries are going out, throughout winter.
More information on road salting and priority routes.
There’s also plenty of general information available to help the county’s residents to stay well during the colder months. If you start to feel unwell, you shouldn’t wait until it gets more serious - NHS Keep Warm and Well Advice


Salt bins are refilled as soon as reasonably possible.  At times of prolonged severe weather, the priority of the winter maintenance teams will be to salt the main roads.  Bins are not provided for personal use.

Go to http://www3.hants.gov.uk/roads/winter-maintenance/salt-bins to report a problem.

Requests for additional bins are co-ordinated via the Parish Council.  Please contact us if you would like to request a salt/grit bin in your area.
