Highways ROSS ( 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 update (Last updated: 30/01/2015 11:49:59)

Dry and fine for the most part of the afternoon, although the odd flurry of sleet or snow may pass through on occasion. Showers of sleet and snow are expected to increase in frequency this evening, with a more persistent spell of snow expected between midnight and 0200. After this, any snow showers will be only very occasional and will generally move through very quickly, but the majority of the rest of the night should be dry and clear. This theme continues through the morning.
