- Signal 107 - 106.5FM (Shrewsbury and central Shropshire) and 107.1FM (Oswestry and north Shropshire)

Local stations usually provide hourly reports. Updates may be provided more frequently during poor winter conditions.
Winter maintenance service on other roads
You can find out about how Shropshire's motorways and trunk roads are maintained during the winter by visiting the Highways England website. Additionally, find out which roads are maintained by Telford & Wrekin by visiting the Telford & Wrekin winter maintenance webpages.
Every time our weather forecasting system from Meteogroup UK or one of our inspectors on the ground reports that snow or ice is predicted, our gritters are ready to get out there!
Follow @ShropCouncil on Twitter for live updates on when and where the gritters are out in Shropshire.
We’ve also teamed up with councils across the West Midlands to provide a regional picture of who’s gritting and when. You can get these direct from Twitter by following the hashtag: #wmgrit.
