Street maintenance

In wintertime, snow is ploughed from the streets and slipperiness is prevented by gritting, salting and brushing. In the spring, the gritting sand is removed from the streets. In summer, maintenance includes repairing road surfaces, maintaining traffic signs, managing drains and culverts and, on gravel roads, levelling the road surface and dust binding. The streets are maintained according to the maintenance classification, first the main streets and then the smaller residential streets. Maintenance classifications can be found on the Espoo Map Service, where you can follow the operations of the maintenance equipment on the Espoo street network for the past 36 hours.
