How can you track them?
You can track Scotland’s gritters using the Trunk Road Gritter Tracker from Traffic Scotland. The online map allows users to check out a live tracking of the gritters on the trunk road network, displaying the current location of gritters.
Active gritters are in yellow, whereas inactive gritters (like ones parked at a depot) are greyed out.
You can use the search bar found in the top left hand side of the site to search for specific gritters, if you’ve got a personal favourite that you’d like to keep tabs on.
