70% risk of further snow today (Friday) – with the possibility of a further 1 or 2 centimeters this afternoon.  A Yellow warning is in place for snow and ice in our area.  (Amber warning for West Sussex.)  Temperatures are unlikely to get above freezing today – but it should get a little milder over the weekend.

Some pavements are very slippery because of compacted snow.  Drivers should beware of pedestrians having to walk down the sides of roads for this reason.

Advice for driving in the snow:

28/29: There are planned roadworks on Hurtis Hill.  For this reason buses will NOT be serving Whitehill Road and the stop on Croft Road (by the end of Southview Road).  They will instead go via A26 Beacon Road and Church Road.  They are however going via Steel Cross this morning.

If the road conditions worsen this afternoon, the buses are likely to stick to the A26 all the way.  The safest bet, if you can, is to catch the bus at Crowborough Camp or Crowborough Cross.  If in doubt ring Customer Service on 01273 886200 (option 2) before going out for a bus to check on the route.   Latest Tweets from Brighton & Hove Buses about the service here:

Bin Collections

Advice is to put your landfill and recycling wheelie bins out as normal.  If Kier are unable to collect on your road you DO NOT need to report a missed collection.  Please leave your bin out and crews will collect at the earliest opportunity.  Garden waste collections have been suspended to allow crews to concentrate on waste and recycling (more detail here).
