Although the threat of flooding has subsided, there are still some roads closed because of the recent wet weather.
Key routes closed are:
• A417 at Maisemore
• B4213 at Hawbridge
• Spittlegate Lane, Cirencester
Drivers are encouraged to take care on the roads, especially in rush hour.
Safer driving tips:
• Check that your car is up to the journey, tyres are correctly inflated and in good condition, and that your lights are clean and working properly.
• Ensure anti-freeze has been added to the radiator & that screen wash is of sufficient concentration.
• Tell a friend or relative where you are going.
• Take a flask of hot drink, torch, mobile phone (fully charged or with charger), blanket and appropriate outdoor clothing.
• Slow down on icy roads and leave a greater distance between you and the car in front.
• Check your route with such organisations as RAC Travel and AA Road-watch, and tune into local radio before you set out.
• If you get stuck in an isolated area, stay with your vehicle and remember that the engine should not be left running.
• Use your mobile phone if you need to access the emergency services for help.
