- Public pavements and footpaths, which are located less than 3 m from the property boundary of an estate, including stairs which are located along these paths
- on all days of the week,
- must be cleared of snow and dirt and have to be gritted in case of snow and ice.
- For a pavement width of up to 1,50 m this applies to the whole surface. For a width of more than 2 m two thirds have to be cleared and gritted. In any case a strip of at least 1,50 m width has to be cleared and gritted.
- In case of no pavement (e. g. pedestrian zones, play streets etc.), a 1 m wide strip along the front sides of the houses has to be maintained.
- At crossing areas, crosswalks and at stop areas of means of mass transportation the whole pavement area has to be cleared and gritted.
- For staircases, which are located along pavements, footpaths etc., a width of 1,50 m (if a railing exists next to it) has to be cleared of snow and gritted. The part which has not been gritted has to be marked (sign, enclosure etc.).
Traffic areas within the estate
Footpaths within the estate (e.g. connecting paths from the public pavement to the house, between building wings or to the rubbish containers) also have to be cleared and gritted according to the corresponding width (if necessary also other traffic areas like access roads, parking areas and others).
Gritting / defrosting agent
For gritting abrasives (especially grit, chippings) have to be used. Sawdust, debris, cinders and the like are not suitable.
Snow cornices and ice-formations on roofs
Until removal (immediate instigation!) the public thouroughfares at risk have to be secured (caution poles!). For houses with house caretakers the caretakers are responsible for the monitoring, for houses without a house caretaker all property owners are required to monitor the situation and in case of snow cornices or icicles to immediately inform the property management!!!
