HCRA roads will not be gritted

Harrow Council’s gritting service says it is poised to spring into to action at the first sign of bad weather. But none of the three HCRA streets are on the official “gritting route”.

As one of the main routes into Harrow, Station Road will be gritted but Rosslyn Crescent, Frognal Avenue and Woodlands Road will not.

Residents can check whether their roads feature on the “gritting route” here.

Meanwhile the council has published some tips for residents on coping with freezing weather such as the best way to clear paths and steps.

These include clearing ice and snow early before it has a chance to freeze, using salt and sand but not hot water, and taking care not to block other people’s paths and drains.
