Selected priority route in Lancaster district to be gritted this evening

We have weather predictions of temperatures falling close to zero on a route tonight with a risk of hoar frost. We will apply salt to the affected priority route this evening to deal with the risk.

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.
