For some reason our road has been cleared and gritted, which is only a
side road and is not a through road to any other road. Does anyone know
if a road has to be cleared if the Police deemed it bad enough to close
It's up to the council whether to grit it or not. If a road is particularly bad, then the police can call the council to request it be gritted. If the council refuse or don't have capacity to do so, then the police will close the road.
