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.

East Lancashire

All priority routes in East Lancs to be gritted this this afternoon and into the evening

We have weather predictions of snow and ice with temperatures reaching Minus 1C. We will apply salt to all priority routes this afternoon with teatments continuing into the evening and over night as necessary.

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.
