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

05/02/2018 13:15

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

We have weather predictions of ice this evening and temperatures reaching minus 4.9 deg C, then snow is forecast from early morning through to lunchtime. We will apply salt to all 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.
