Receive information about the winter service

Description

The responsibility for winter road maintenance on Saxony-Anhalt's roads lies with the regulatory authorities of the respective municipalities, cities or districts. The road authorities are therefore responsible for ensuring that the roads remain safe to drive on in icy and snowy conditions by gritting and clearing the road surface.

The situation is different within local thoroughfares. The winter road maintenance service provided by the road construction authority only applies to the carriageway of the road in the course of local thoroughfares. Winter road maintenance on footpaths and cycle paths, on the other hand, is governed by the current bylaws of the towns, municipalities or administrative communities. You can obtain more detailed information there.

Residents' duties on sidewalks:

On the basis of the currently valid street cleaning statutes of the city of Halle (Saale) , the property owners adjacent to a public road or footpath are responsible for winter maintenance in front of their properties. This regulation applies to all streets regardless of their classification in the individual cleaning classes. It should be noted that the residents' obligation applies to all roads or footpaths adjacent to the property and not just to the access area of the property in question.

The winter service for residents is regulated in detail as follows:

1. principle:

The sidewalks must be kept free of snow to a width of at least 1.50 m as required for pedestrian traffic and gritted with de-icing agents in the event of icy or slippery snow. In the case of roads or parts of roads that do not have sidewalks, a correspondingly wide strip (1.50 m) must be kept free of snow and ice at the edges of the road.

2. pedestrian crossings:

Where sidewalks are located at crosswalks or crosswalks, the crossings from the sidewalk to the roadway must be kept clear for pedestrians.

3. bus stops:

At streetcar and bus stops and cab ranks, winter maintenance must be carried out by the respective residents in such a way that passengers can board and alight without hindrance. Snow may not be deposited on the edge of the boarding platform.

4. use of road salt:

The use of salt and other de-icing substances on footpaths is not permitted as a matter of principle.
Exceptions to this rule are only permitted under the following conditions

  • (a) in exceptional climatic cases with special justification, such as extreme slippery snow and ice and freezing rain
  • b) on stairs, ramps, bridge entrances and exits, slopes or inclines or similar hazardous areas

Caution!
Tree grates and green areas must not be sprinkled with salt or other de-icing substances. Snow mixed with such substances may not be deposited on or near these areas.

5. winter service times:

weekdays between 7.00 a.m. and 8.00 p.m.
Saturdays between 8.00 and 20.00 hours
Sundays and public holidays between 9.00 a.m. and 8.00 p.m.

Snow that has fallen during these times and any ice that has formed must be removed immediately after the snow has fallen or the ice has formed. Snow that has fallen after 8.00 p.m. and slippery conditions must be removed the following day at the latter times.

Winter road maintenance is carried out between 6.00 a.m. and 10.00 p.m. (see gritting and clearing schedule).

Streets from A to Z, main access routes to parking lots including disabled parking spaces and pedestrian areas that are cleared by the city can be found in the relevant information sheets under the heading Statutes, Forms, Information Sheets.

In accordance with § 7 of the street cleaning statutes, anyone who fails to comply with their obligations can be fined up to EUR 2,500.
