Winter in Lancashire

When the bad weather strikes this winter, our fleet of gritters and snow ploughs will be working hard to keep Lancashire's roads moving.

You can view regular updates on the decisions to grit the county's roads and pavements below.

Selected routes in Lancaster and Wyre Districts Lancs to be gritted this evening.

We have weather predictions of snow/ice and temperatures reaching plus 0.8 degrees Celsuis. We will apply salt to selected priority routes.

See our online gritting map for details of our priority routes.


Priority routes only cover a third of the highway network and ice patches can develop on treated surfaces caused by water run-off from fields or other sources. Ice is most likely on untreated surfaces.
