MOTORISTS are being warned to prepare for major travel disruption due to the predicted snow from the Highways Agency.

An amber alert has been issued for the area from tomorrow morning with the bad weather expected to hit before rush hour on Friday morning.

Steve Crosthwaite, head of the agency’s National Traffic Operations Centre said: “It would certainly be a good idea to check the latest forecast before you go to bed tonight so you’re prepared for the morning – and then set your alarm a bit earlier so you have extra time to prepare your car and make your journey in the morning.

“During periods of severe weather we also suggest people consider whether their journey is essential. They may want to delay their travel until conditions improve and to allow our winter fleet the chance to treat the roads.”
