GRITTERS TO BE DEPLOYED TONIGHT AS TEMPERATURES HEAD BELOW ZERO

Published:

Gritters are set to be deployed across the Island’s road network this evening, as forecasts show temperatures dipping below 0C.

Island Roads say that their winter maintenance fleet will depart from their base at Stag Lane at 03:00, and commence the treatments of key routes across the Isle of Wight.

Temperatures will drop to -1C in some parts by 05:00, with showers earlier in the evening wetting the roads, potentially leading to ice forming.
