East Lancashire

All priority routes in East Lancashire to be gritted this evening.

We have weather predictions of snow/ice and temperatures reaching minus 3.7C. We will apply salt to all priority routes.

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.
