The Met Office forecasts suggest road surface temperatures could also be below freezing later this week with a prolonged spell of cold weather so the gritting teams could also be out throughout the period.

The data is monitored from Via East Midlands’ Newark depot – Via is managing highways services on behalf of Nottinghamshire County Council as they work in partnership on the ongoing annual winter planning preparations.
