The winter maintenance of streets includes the clearing of snow and ice, and gritting the streets. Winter maintenance also includes the clearing of anti-slip grit in the spring.
Individual properties are charged with the winter maintenance of pavements in front of the properties. In addition, the properties must remove snow banks accumulating on the pavement or next to it and ensure that the gutter next to the pavement is clear of snow and ice.
The Public Works Department takes care of the winter maintenance of carriageways, market squares and pedestrian and cycling paths. In certain areas, all street maintenance duties have been transferred from the properties to the City.
Individual properties are allowed to transport cleared snow to Snow Disposal Areas maintained by the Public Works Department.
