When the bad weather strikes this winter, our fleet of gritters and snow ploughs will be working hard to keep Lancashire's roads moving.
We grit the following areas:
Area North - Lancaster, Wyre, Fylde
Area East - Burnley, Hyndburn, Ribble Valley, Rossendale, Pendle
Area Central and South - Chorley, Preston, South Ribble, West Lancashire
You can view regular updates on the decisions to grit the county's roads and pavements below.
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.
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.
