Northamptonshire Highways don’t have the resource to grit every road in the county – and unfortunately Main Street in our village is one of those roads that are not gritted. However we do have grit boxes along the side of Main Street which we can use on highways and paths ourselves.
There’s a common misconception that the public could be held liable if they use grit from the grit bins. This is not true, and Northamptonshire Highways actively encourage people to use the grit in these bins on paths, roads or public spaces.
So please don’t be afraid to clear public paths or roads using grit from the grit bins.
If you find the grit bins are empty or running low, please use the Street Doctor link to report it, and Northamptonshire Highways will come out and refill it.
