Snow gates closed

Evening Express (City Final) - - News -

A NORTH-EAST road has been closed fol­low­ing heavy snow­fall. Po­lice ad­vised mo­torists at 9pm yes­ter­day that the snow gates on the A939 be­tween Cock­bridge and Tom­intoul were closed as a re­sult of ad­verse weather. Driv­ers were also urged to take care on the B974 Cairn O’mount Ban­chory to Fet­ter­cairn route amid re­ports of win­try show­ers and poor road con­di­tions. As tem­per­a­tures plunged be­low zero, Aberdeen­shire Coun­cil also asked peo­ple to drive to the con­di­tions and be aware of ice. Grit­ters were out in Marr from 6pm last night and oper­at­ing on a num­ber of routes from 5.30am to­day. The Met Of­fice said there would be a frosty start to to­day with patchy ice, fol­lowed by sunny in­ter­vals and show­ers of hail, sleet and hill snow.
