Given a number of vehicles got stuck in the snow on the M74 between Carlisle and Glasgow last night, please bear in mind the weather conditions when travelling to Stranraer for the Four Nations this weekend.
A yellow warning for snow and ice was issued by the Met Office for Thursday and Friday, covering all of the A75 route from Carlisle to Stranraer.
It follows the more serious weather on Wednesday night – which led to an Amber warning – and left multiple lorries jackknifed across the route overnight due to the thick snow cover.
Please keep up to date with the forecast and prepare for the journey as appropriate.
Police Scotland and Traffic Scotland also issued the following on Wednesday evening (the “do not travel” warning expired on Thursday morning):
Police Scotland are advising that conditions for travel in the Dumfries and Galloway areas may be hazardous and EXTRA CAUTION should be exercised.
