Latest snow update

This page was last updated at 4.45pm on Monday 19 March 2018.

The last three main Derbyshire routes closed due to snow have reopened after a day of clearance work.

Now open and passable with care are:

  • A6024 Holme Moss
  • A57 Snake Pass
  • Monks Road, Chunal to Charlesworth

Please take care if using the routes as roadside snow could still blow onto the carriageway.

Our farmer contractors are working to dig out isolated villages and hamlets which are still blocked by snow drifts.

We gritted all secondary routes across the county earlier this afternoon and are now doing a full treatment of the primary network.

No further snow is forecast. However, the Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for overnight ice on road surfaces as thawing snow runs across the carriageway as water. Motorists are advised to take extra care, even on treated surfaces.

Check if your road is on a gritting route, when it was last gritted, and road closure information (opens in a new window).

We use the latest weather forecast from the Met Office (opens in a new window) to help us to decide where and when to grit.

Find a grit bin if you want to help keep roads and pavements in your area free from ice.

Check to see which of our schools are partially or fully closed and sign up to receive email alerts.
