There is also a suite of resources for use in schools.
Resources providing information for the public include a series of posters and a leaflet.
The campaign materials cover all adverse weather conditions including snow, strong winds, fog and rain and encourage road users to: make preparations before winter and before each journey; keep informed about weather and the traffic situation; and adjust their journey plans where necessary.
The resources also aim to foster a greater public understanding of HE’s winter operation including how it and local authorities treat the roads.
