Major road changes come into effect today as temperatures drop


Over the summer months, vehicles have been maintained and serviced and are in position at their depots ready to go, whenever the call comes.

Drivers have been retrained during the summer season and are on winter rosters together with National Highways’ autumn and winter decision-makers.

Data from independent meteorological experts DTN and Metdesk provides a precise look at road surface temperatures across the road network.

For example, for the South West area of England, National Highways receives route-by-route forecasts four times a day for each of its 40 salting routes to help the team decide whether any salt spreading is needed over the following 24-hour period.
