    The presentation of the above information appears to be intentionally misleading unless it means that 36 trips in total have been made. When I was able to get to priority 3 routes in Sheldon/Yardley early this morning, there was clearly no grit on them!

    Whilst commenting: Is the grit box at the junction of Manorhouse Lane and Barrows Lane recyclable? Why not do our bit for the environment as it is has been empty since late December.

    Many thanks

    The city centre pavements around New Street station had no sign of grit this morning but plenty of slippery snow. Likewise no sign of grit between Harborne and City centre. Clearly the level 2 and 3 routes have not been gritted despite this snow having been forecast for a week.

    Where are the grit bins for the side roads. None in our neck of the woods. Remind me what we pay for again?
