|Map indicator||Gritting priority level (plus link)||Brief description|
|Solid turquoise line||Road frost patrol||Frost patrols are carried out when there is a forecast of near or sub-zero overnight temperatures, which may result in the formation of frost or ice.|
|Solid purple line||Road priority 1||These are the most heavily trafficked and/or steepest roads, and those serving important locations (such as ambulance or fire stations) on less heavily trafficked roads.|
|Solid blue line||Road priority 1A (schools)||These are roads that do not carry heavy traffic, but do serve schools. This classification only applies during term time.|
|Solid green line||Road priority 2||These are moderately trafficked and less steep roads in the borough, and those serving locations where there are known groups of vulnerable people (such as residential care homes)|
|Solid orange line||Road priority 3||These are the least trafficked and lowest gradient roads in the borough.|
|Solid pink line||Road resilience network||The roads that have been agreed with Transport for London as essential to keep London moving. In the rare event of a grit shortage, only these streets will receive ongoing treatment.|
|Dotted green line||Pavement frost patrol||Frost patrols are carried out when there is a forecast of near or sub-zero overnight temperatures, which may result in the formation of frost or ice.|
|Dotted red line||Pavement priority 1||These are the busiest pavements, and those serving key locations such as transport hubs, emergency services premises, residential care homes, town centres and main shopping areas.|
|Dotted pink line||Pavement priority 1B||These are pavements on main roads in the borough that are not included as pavement priority 1, but do need localised treatment, such as on dropped kerbs, crossings, at bus stops, and outside public buildings.|
|Dotted blue line||Pavement priority 2 (schools)||These are pavements that do not carry heavy pedestrian traffic, but do serve schools. This classification only applies during term time.|
|GB symbol||Grit bins locations||There are 165 grit bins throughout the borough, normally at more remote locations that are not included in priority 1 and 2 schedules but where there are enhanced risks, such as at hilly or exposed locations, and also potentially dangerous road junctions.|
