A ‘LIVE map’ of which roads are being treated against winter weather can be now accessed by vehicle drivers and riders using roads in the local authority area of Moray.
Says Moray Council of its newly-launched service – here: “We review the Met Office weather forecasts each day and plan treatments [mainly road gritting] for the following 24 hours.
“We’ve produced a live map that provides information on what we have planned.
“You can click on a route for information on scheduled treatments and there are with links to more detailed descriptions on downloadable PDF documents.”
The scheduled treatment map shows winter actions for priority routes over a 24-hour period. The maps are updated twice daily – at midnight and after midday.
Actions on lower priority routes commence on completion of the priority routes.
Using the map
The scheduled treatment map is interactive and has three tabs, representing:
Today AM – Treatment planned for this morning.
Today PM – Treatment planned for this evening.
Tomorrow AM – Treatment planned for the next morning.
The map will always provide current information; for instance, at midnight, the data on ‘Tomorrow AM’ will transfer to the ‘Today AM’.
A spokesperson added: These maps show our current planned treatments, but are subject to change due to a range of factors such as vehicle/staff availability. Please continue to take precautions, follow police advice and drive carefully during the cold weather.”
Moray Council area stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Forres in the west.
