Winter trunk road teams

We run a dedicated 24-hour operation to keep our trunk roads moving, with more than 500 people available to undertake winter service duties across Scotland through our road operating companies Amey, BEAR Scotland, and Scotland TranServ. 

The winter teams look after our roads with the help of 213 gritters based at more than 40 depots, as well as our fleet of emergency vehicles.

We also work more widely with stakeholders including Police Scotland, the Met Office and other transport organisations in the Scottish Multi Agency Response Team (MART)

For general information or to report a defect you can get in touch with the Traffic Customer Care Line on 0800 028 1414 or you can visit the operating company websites to find out more:
