Make Time for Winter
When the weather isn't great, travelling can take a little more time.
By spending some of that time preparing for the snow and ice, we can all help keep the country on the move.
Countdown to an easier winter journey
Are you prepared? Check your vehicle is ready for winter - and always carry an emergency kit.
Before you set off - just a few minutes checking the weather forecast and traffic reports for your journey could make all the difference.
The Highways Agency winter teams need time and space to do their job. By planning your journey around the weather it helps allow their crews the time and space they need to get ahead of you and keep the network clear for you.
The Agency's key messages for road users are:
- Be informed - check traffic and weather updates
- Be prepared - check your vehicle is ready for winter and always carry your emergency kit
- Be aware - in severe weather the Highways Agency winter teams need the time and space to do their job
- Be wise - conditions may change, drive with care

In case of Adverse Weather
If you're due to fly and are worried about adverse weather conditions having an effect on your flight, Liverpool John Lennon Airport advises passengers to check the status of their flights directly with their airline or tour operator for the most up to date information about their route.
It is the airline or tour operator that decides whether or not to operate a particular flight, and their decision takes into account a number of factors including the weather at departure and destination airport.
