Adverse weather plan

This document describes Gloucestershire Roads' arrangements for dealing with ice, snow and other emergencies on the highway arising from adverse weather conditions. It also provides contact information for key personnel.

The plan covers arrangements for roads in Gloucestershire that are the responsibility of Gloucestershire County Council. It excludes arrangements for roads that are the responsibility of the Highways Agency, i.e.

  • A417/A419 from the county boundary near South Cerney to Zoons Court roundabout east of Gloucester
  • A40 from the M5 west to the county boundary near Boxbush
  • A46 from the M5 east to the county boundary near Teddington
  • M5 and M50 motorways

Local self-help plays an important part in dealing with snow and other adverse weather conditions. Arrangements for work which may be carried out by Snow Wardens and Snow Plough Operators appointed by Parish Councils are included in this plan.

The new guidance for 2018-19 can be downloaded from this page.
