Name A Gritter



 Here's YOUR chance to name a new Amey gritter working in North East Scotland!

Amey’s north east trunk road team is calling on the public to come up with a name for one of its brand new gritters which will be deployed on the network this winter.

Get involved and help us to name one of the 32-tonne, eight-wheeled vehicles – some of the largest in the UK - which work hard to keep trunk roads safe and clear each winter.

The winning name will be displayed on a gritter based at an Amey depot closest to the location of the winning entrant, so the winner should be able to spot their gritter out and about on roads closest to them!
