A blast of winter weather has swept across Aberdeenshire and roads staff from the Council have been busy accross the shire dealing with the aftermath of heavy snow. Head of Roads and Landscape Services, Philip McKay, said: “Aberdeenshire Council gritters were out on Tuesday afternoon as well as Wednesday morning carrying out the preventative treatment of routes across the region.

“We are aware of traffic delays and I urge all road users to plan their journeys with care, giving extra time to travel and driving to the conditions.

“Personnel and equipment are dispersed across Aberdeenshire so appropriate treatments can be carried out as quickly and efficiently as possible. Please report any gritting or snow clearing issued online through our website or phone 08456 08 12 05.”
