Selected priority route in Lancaster District will be gritted tonight

Potentially a cold night tonight with weather predictions of road temperatures falling close to zero with a risk of ice in isolated places. We will apply salt to affected priority route 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.
