Cheshire East Council has confirmed that changes to gritting routes will be implemented next winter following a review.
The new gritting routes have been determined according to published assessment criteria, with each road scored and ranked accordingly, following various consultations with council members, area highway group chairs, schools, cycling groups, town and parish councils and emergency services.
As a result of consultation, Mobberley Road, Wilmslow which had previously been earmarked for removal has now been added along with Burleyhurst Lane in Mobberley.
A total of 1,043km out of 2,700km (38 per cent) of the highway network has been identified as requiring routine winter treatment.
Councillor Craig Browne, chair of the council's highways and transport committee, said: "This review was essential to ensure the council does not lose future incentive funding (around £2m) from the DfT, thereby placing an even bigger strain on the borough's crumbling road network.
"The code of practice requires that we focus our efforts on gritting roads where there is higher risk and we will continue to provide an effective and responsive service – as the safety of our road users is paramount."
The winter maintenance season will run from 1 October 2021 to April 2022 and will provide a 24-hour, seven-days-a-week service to keep the borough's roads open and safe during the winter months.
Details of the revised gritting routes can be found on the council's website.
