FTA’s traffic service operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, providing vital amber and red winter weather alerts. 

Daily updates give information on UK road traffic and weather conditions affecting freight operations, with additional alerts on severe incidents. 

There are also advance warnings of any severe weather forecasts issued by the Met Office. 

Further information is available on the FTA website

The FTA website also contains advice for managers and drivers on dealing with poor weather conditions, here.
