The Highways team use long term weather forecasts to help them plan for all types of winter weather. Predictions for  winter 2016-17 suggest that global warmth is at record levels however this does not mean that the UK will be facing a warm winter.

The Fixing the Links project is moving into the final stages with work to complete the retaining wall and steps at Locke Road taking place over the next few weeks. This will mean that the road is closed to all traffic apart from deliveries to the nearby retailers.
