Selected priority routes in rural Lancaster Wyre & Fylde district to be gritted following overnight forecast amend

We now have weather predictions of road temperatures falling close to zero this morning with a risk of hoar frost on some routes. We will apply salt to thesel priority routes to deal with the risk. Please drive with care.

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

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