GRITTERS are rolling out on the roads of Crow Country again as the region prepares for more wintry weather.
Snow fell last night (Thursday), and more wintry showers are expected over the weekend.
Cllr Stuart Pile, executive member for highways and transport at Hertfordshire County Council, said: "We have supplies to keep salting well into next week, although we are still - as directed by government - salting a reduced network."
All "A" and "B" roads will be salted, along with those which provide access to essential emergency services.
Cllr Pile added: "Conditions on Hertfordshire's roads are likely to be difficult. Please take care if you're out and about, allow extra time for journeys and be prepared for unexpected delays."
Full information about the winter service is on the council's website www.hertsdirect.org/salting.
