The Met Office has issued Amber and Yellow weather warnings for snow and ice that are scheduled to last until Wednesday (10 February).
The latest Amber warning for snow was issued on Monday (8 Feb) and covers Stirling and the surrounding areas. It will apply from 3am until 9pm on Tuesday (9 Feb)
In anticipation of the adverse conditions, and the potential impact on roads and services, the Council has taken the following actions:
- Gritting Teams will continue treating Priority 1 and 2 routes, including roads and paths next to Covid-19 vaccination centres.
- Gritting Teams will be ready with snow ploughs if roads become blocked and snow accumulations will be treated as they occur.
- A refill of gritting bins has been carried out.
If the forecast weather comes to fruition, significant disruption is expected on the road network, particularly in the area covered by the Amber Warning.
Road closures and travel delays are likely and some Council services such as household waste collections could be affected.
Regular updates on any service disruption will be added to the Council website and social media channels – Twitter and Facebook – as and when they are available. Please check here before calling the Contact Centre.
The current Covid-19 lockdown restrictions also only allow people to leave their home for an essential purpose, so please continue to comply with these measures, especially with the anticipated disruption to roads and transport.
Should the adverse weather prevent you from attending a Covid-19 vaccination appointment, you can reschedule your appointment on the NHS Inform website.
