TRAFFIC ALERT: Icy driving conditions across Maidstone
Monday 2nd December 2019
GRITTERS will be out in force this evening as forecasters warn the temperature will fall to well below freezing this evening.
Kent Highways says its lorries will be working to spread salt and grit on the area’s main roads by 6pm tonight.
A spokesman said: “Motorists are advised to watch out for icy stretches, particularly on the untreated roads overnight and into tomorrow morning. They should drive cautiously and be deliberate and slower in actions.”
The Met offices says temperatures will dip to just one degree by midnight and expect this to be ahead of misty driving conditions from around 10pm.
