I know many of you will have been affected by Storm Doris and the horrendous conditions this morning. The situation around Cumbernauld has been particularly bad. Stay safe out there and please take extra precautions before setting off on any journeys and check Traffic Scotland for updates.
I understand the many difficulties associated with responding to a situation like this and appreciate the commendable efforts of staff to try to overcome them but share frustrations that the Cumbernauld area appears to have been so badly affected, causing significant delays and outright dangerous conditions on the roads in the town this morning.
I contacted North Lanarkshire Council to ask what steps were taken to prepare Cumbernauld for the impact of Storm Doris and the measures NLC will be taking to ensure the roads are safe again this evening.
