Weekend snow affects roads in Crosspool

Snow arrived in Crosspool on Saturday afternoon, causing problems on local roads and delays to public transport services.

Major roads were gritted in preparation for the snowfall, which was over 10cm deep on some areas by the morning.

By Sunday afternoon the 51 bus service was back to normal and most of the main roads through Crosspool were passable. However, surface snow and ice on side roads were continuing to cause trouble for cars, with evidence of at least one minor accident in the neighbourhood.

The thaw appears to have already started and no further snow is forecast over the next few days. However, as temperatures remain low, any lingering snow and surface water may turn to ice so drivers and pedestrians are advised to take care – particularly on Crosspool’s hilly roads.

Do also check up on your neighbours who may feel isolated and vulnerable during the bad weather.
