Winter gritting

Gritting is carried out during the winter period between late October and April and precautionary salting is carried out on all principal, main and secondary distributor roads and roads with steep gradients.

Where is my nearest salt bin

To assist residents in off main route areas where salting is likely to be delayed for priority reasons, bins containing salt are situated at strategic locations throughout the London Borough of Bexley can be used for hand salting of the highway. The salt contained in the bins should not be used to cover private drives.

The location of salt bins can be found in following document Salt bin locations (PDF, 25KB)
