We’ve joined forces with colleagues in Walsall, Dudley, Sandwell, Staffordshire, Shropshire and Solihull to bring together the gritting alerts and related news from across the West Midlands.
Our aim is to make it easier for people travelling across more than one local authority in the region – it may be reassuring to know the gritters have been out in Birmingham but if you’re travelling to Telford, you also want to know about the roads for your entire journey.

Local volunteers from the Open Street Map project have kindly mapped gritting routes onto their map. While we can accept no liability for any errors, we’re very grateful to them for their contribution.
