Winter

Highways ROSS (highways.ross@kirklees.gov.uk) Last updated - January 2015

Winter maintenance is an important role for our Highways and Transportation Service. We carry out winter maintenance to allow all road users to move about as safely as possible and to help minimise delays caused by adverse weather conditions.

Our winter maintenance service operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and is in place whenever the weather demands.

Weather

Weather update (Last updated: 02/03/2015 13:19:07)

Further wintry showers are expected this afternoon, but they should become more scattered and lighter, with no lasting accumulations during daylight hours. This evening though, an area of more organised sleet and snow will move in from the west from 1800-2200, initially not much will settle, but some accumulations are possible higher up. After this, showers will become more scattered with many places drier for a while, then between 0200 and 0600, another organised area of sleet and snow will move east, bringing more significant accumulations. Tomorrow morning will continue with the mixture of sunny spells and wintry showers, though as today, no daytime accumulations of snow are expected.
