Yesterday the A41 close to Tring was closed after around 100 cars were stranded by the heavy snowfall which continued throughout the day.

Over last 24 hours Transport for Buckinghamshire says it has spread approximately 850 tonnes of salt over 7,000 km of road, through five gritting runs and continuous ‘snow route’ (that’s all A and B roads) treatment in the south of the county.

The council said this has helped keep routes clear which were impacted with additional traffic as drivers sought alternative routes after the closure of M40 at High Wycombe.

Buckinghamshire County Council Cabinet Member for Transportation Mark Shaw praised the teams working hard all night to keep the roads safe: “Huge thanks goes to the 65 operatives and staff who have been working long hours in adverse weather to treat the roads. From the gritter drivers, supervisors, decision makers and off duty office staff to the outside contractors from District Councils and tree surgeons who worked to clear fallen trees - your efforts have meant the county’s roads are safer. But still - salting is not a fail safe, and further snow and ice are forecast overnight. Please think twice before making any unnecessary journeys, and check the council’s winter pages for updates tomorrow on closures which may affect businesses and schools.”

The hard work is not over yet, and further gritting runs are scheduled to continue through the night and then until the forecast and conditions improve.

Aylesbury College campus remains open but a number of schools are closed today because of the weather.
