This paper studies large scale instances of a fairly general arc-routing problem as well as incorporate practical constraints in particular coming from the scheduling problem of the winter road maintenance (e.g. different priorities for and methods of road maintenance). We develop a new algorithm based on a bin-packing heuristic which is well-scalable and able to solve road networks on thousands of crossroads and road segments in few minutes. Since it is impossible to find an optimal solution for such a large instances to compare it with a result of our algorithm, we also develop techniques to compute lower bounds which are based on Integer Linear Programming and Lazy Constraints.
