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.

Central and South Lancashire

02/02/2018 12:57

All priority routes in Central & South Lancs to be gritted this evening.

Please take extra care when driving tonight. We have predictions of icy roads this evening followed by sleet & snow overnight and temperatures reaching minus 1.1 deg C. We will apply salt to all priority routes then continue monitoring and retreating overnight as required.

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.
