Met Office prompts road warning

Gritting teams out 'pre-treating' main routes

Freezing conditions predicted for this evening have prompted a roads warning from government and an amber weather warning from forecasters.

Ronaldsway Met Office says temperatures will dip to between zero and minus two degrees Celsius, from 4 this afternoon until 5 tomorrow morning, with a risk of ice forming on untreated road surfaces.

Gritting teams have been deployed again this afternoon for pre-treatment of many routes, including main roads to the South, North and East of the Island.

These include 5&6 South, 7&8 North, and 9&10 East, which can be viewed in detail by following the link below.:
