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.

Gritters will be patrolling this Overnight and treating where necessary in on selected routes in East Lancashire

There is a possibility of some snow showers so our gritters will be out patrolling and monitoring some of the priority routes and treating them where necessary.  Please take extra care on the roads if you are out driving.

See our winter service website for winter driving advice.

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.
