The Department for Infrastructure’s winter safety service is ready to keep people moving on our roads following a warning for snow and ice.  

Around 300 staff and 130 gritters will be available to salt main roads to keep traffic moving safely and freely. Twelve specialist snow blowers are also available to be deployed if required.

John Irvine, Head of Network Services, Department for Infrastructure, said: “Every year our winter service operation remains in place from November to April to ensure 7,000 kilometres

John Irvine continued: “Despite our best efforts it is important to remember that we cannot guarantee ice free roads even after salting, as showers can wash salt off the road and ice may form. We all need to be mindful of the changing conditions and adjust the way we drive, ride or cycle to ensure it is appropriate for the conditions. The best advice is in the Highway Code, take extra care even if roads have been salted, be prepared for road conditions changing over short distances and take care when overtaking gritters.”

Multi agency responders met earlier today and are continuing to monitor the weather and have emergency planning arrangements in place to deal with any weather impacts.
