Steve Bayley is CORMAC Network Manager:

''We had the forecast yesterday lunchtime which is what we've based our decision on, and we've been out last night and today reactively as well in terms of the snow that's fallen overnight into this morning. It's important to note that even if we salt, it doesn't guarantee ice won't potentially form so there's a still a risk there. People need to be aware of that when they're driving.''
