With temperatures dropping, the Birmingham gritters are on duty tonight and will treat the roads from 6pm. We will then treat footways from 4.30am on Monday morning.
UPDATE – we also plan to grit the roads a second time at 3.30am on Monday morning (January 19) due to the severity of overnight temperatures.
