Essential Website Maintenance – Thursday 9th January 2020

We will be carrying out essential website maintenance in the afternoon which will affect some functionality. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience the work may cause and will do all we can to keep disruption to an absolute minimum.

Name our gritters

Summary (optional)
We’re asking for your help in naming our fleet of gritters.
start content

We have 13 gritter trucks which are on standby 24/7 between October and April. When our forecasts show wintery conditions and low road surface temperatures, the trucks are sent out on First Priority Routes which cover a third of the county’s roads. These routes include main traffic and bus routes and routes for the emergency services. We think these hardworking vehicles deserve their own names.

Suggest a name

Entries should be fun, original and clean, in either Welsh or English.

Judging panel

Our judging panel is made up of winter works staff and Cllr Greg Robbins, Cabinet Member for Environment and Transportation. They have the tough job of creating a shortlist from all the public entries.

Public vote

Vote for our gritter names!

Closed: Monday 22 February
