Council have plans in place for ‘Beast from the East’
Salting operations are to continue throughout the period; snow ploughs will be fitted when required to ensure main roads are kept open.
Snowfall will be effecting most of the country over the forthcoming week and the Met Office have issued yellow weather warnings for snow as well as amber warnings for some areas.
Following these warnings, West Sussex County Council have said they have plans in place to keep main roads open.
A West Sussex Highways spokesman said:
“Precautionary salting operations will continue throughout the period and snow ploughs will be fitted when required to ensure main roads are kept open.
“We are therefore advising Town and Parish Councils to be prepared to enact their Winter Management Plans IF and when we issue an instruction to do so.”
A further update will be issued later today.
