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.

North Lancashire

12/01/2020 12:34

All priority routes in Wyre, Fylde and Lancaster Districts to be gritted this evening.

It will be potentially a cold night tonight with weather predictions of road temperatures falling close to zero with a risk of ice and hoar frost. We will apply salt to all priority routes this evening 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 rainfall. Ice is likely on untreated surfaces.
