'Beast from the East' snow storms hits Barrhead and East Renfrewshire

Pulse 98.4 programmes are distrupted today, Wednesday 28 February as the predicted 'Beast from the East' snow storms hit central and east Scotland including the Pulse 98.4 area of Barrhead and south west Glasgow.

East Renfrewshire Council issued at statement that all schools in the East Renfrewshire Council authority area will be shut on Wednesday 28 February and Thursday 1 March 2018 due to the adverse weather conditions.

Residents are being advised to avoid travel due to the severe snow and further updates about the plans for school openings on Thursday, 1 March, will be provided as soon as the Council are aware of the latest weather situation.  Parents should also monitor school websites and social media for additional updates.

Police Scotland are advising that the Met Office has issued a YELLOW alert and an AMBER alert for SNOW and that the general public should AVOID TRAVELLING ON THE ROADS for Central, Tayside & Fife, Lothian, Borders and Strathclyde including the greater Glasgow areas.

If you do travel, you will experience severe delays of several hours or more. Conditions for travel are extremely dangerous and you should avoid the specified roads and if you do travel you will experience severe disruption.

Congestion caused by vehicles may restrict emergency, recovery or winter maintenance vehicles from providing essential assistance or from clearing roads. Drivers of HGVs should drive with extreme caution and be aware that you may be requested to park at a suitable position by the police.

Winter driving is a question of common sense and drivers should ask themselves if they really need to travel when conditions are poor. No-one should ever place themselves at risk on the road and it may be worth making alternative arrangements such as delaying travel until conditions improve or using public transport.

If you are travelling on the roads you should ensure you and your vehicle are adequately prepared for the conditions, making sure you have sufficient fuel and supplies such as warm clothing, food and water in the event you are delayed for several hours. Charge your mobile phone and plan your route as well as alternative routes.
