Motorists are being advised to take care extra care on roads across Suffolk as heavy snowfall is predicted for rush hour today (Monday).
Suffolk County Council’s gritting teams and community volunteers have been preparing for freezing temperatures, with 45 gritters sent out to tackle around 3,300km of Suffolk’s roads.
Councillor Guy McGregor, Suffolk County Council’s cabinet member for roads, transport and planning, said: “I really can’t stress enough how important it is for those hoping to travel across the county this afternoon to plan ahead and leave extra time for their journeys.
“Our gritters will be out to deal with the snow, which is expected to be falling during rush hour. This can make it difficult for our gritters to move around and deal with the falling snow easily.
“It is imperative that motorists do all they can to regularly check the weather forecast, drive to the conditions and stay safe on the county’s roads this afternoon.”
