Chief Inspector David Roome said: “We recognise that people will be travelling over the Easter weekend and many visitors will be coming to North Wales, so we are keen to emphasise that everyone visiting the area should be prepared for the weather conditions.”
The main routes are mostly now clear, but minor roads are still hazardous and temperatures are expected to remain around freezing.
“We don’t expect conditions to improve for several days so we want to advise people to plan their route properly, allow plenty of time for journeys and to make sure they are well equipped,” said CI Roome, adding that all the highways departments are working extremely hard to ensure that as many roads as possible are cleared.
“Everyone is working together to resolve the all the issues as quickly as possible.”
Police are also reiterating the message that people should keep checking on vulnerable neighbours, especially in remote rural areas.
“Some people have not been out for over a week. Their supplies may be running low and they may have health issues. If you have concerns about people in isolated areas please check on them, or contact the relevant authority. We ask that you look after yourselves and your neighbours.”
Police says the Horseshoe Pass will remain closed throughout the Easter period.
