Winter Weather Warning

 

Cheshire East Council is warning of severe winter weather conditions this weekend with the likelihood of icy stretches on untreated roads and scattered wintry showers including snow showers.

Gritting is already taking place on roads throughout the borough and the temperature is expected to fall well below freezing in exposed rural areas.

The wintry conditions are likely to last most of the weekend and Councillor David Topping, Cabinet member for service commissioning said “We urge people to make only necessary journeys if the weather conditions deteriorate as predicted.

“Our gritters will be out at regular intervals during the weekend to make sure our roads are safe but it would be wise for motorists to ask themselves – is their journey really essential?

“Adding to the problem is the amount of standing water on our highways because of recent rainfall.

“We grit about 40% of our total road network – that’s over 1,000 km in total.

“And people can actually see where our gritters are operating if they go on to our Cheshire East Highways web site and look for the Winter Service page.

“We would also urge residents to keep an eye on elderly neighbours, especially those people living alone.”
