Norfolk’s main roads were continuing to improve today (Mon) after more than 24 hours of non-stop gritting and snow ploughing.Norfolk County Council’s gritters and snowploughs worked on priority routes throughout the heavy overnight snow and were back on the road this morning. For the first time since the freeze began last week, strong winds added to the problems, with snowdrifts up to two feet deep across some roads.

Farmers have been mobilised to clear minor roads in parts of the county, and the council’s gritting fleet was also expected to move on to plough and treat lower priority (priority three) roads during the afternoon. They will then return to the main network of just over 2,000 miles (priority one and two) during the evening and overnight, when there is a risk of snow showers adding up to 3cms to the lying snow.
