Gully maintenance and spillages

Gully maintenance

Road Services is responsible for the maintenance of East Lothian's roadside gullies and these are cleaned an annual basis. During flood conditions, we provide a reactive service to clear overflowing ditches, gullies and drains on roads and pavements.


Roads Services is also responsible for keeping roads and pavements clear of spillages from substances such as oil or diesel.

If a spillage is hazardous, Police Scotland and Scottish Fire and Rescue Service may also become involved and road closures may be necessary.
