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.

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