Make time for winter
Snow, ice, high winds, mist and fog, heavy rain – winter can bring all kinds of severe weather. These present different challenges both for us in keeping the Highways Agency network open and for road users driving through difficult conditions.
These web pages will explain more about how we treat our network during winter – and how you can help us – along with information and advice to help you prepare for journeys in severe weather.
What can you do to reduce the chances of breaking down?
Check your vehicle is in good running order before you set out and consider regular servicing to help minimise the risk.
In severe and wintry weather it’s even more important to plan your journey. We provide up to the minute traffic reports for our network of 4,300 miles of motorways and major A roads across England.
Just a few minutes checking before you set off can make all the difference to your journey.
You can keep up to date with our winter campaign on social media. We’ll have latest updates, weather reports information and advice as the weather changes throughout the season.
